Drawing Self-Portraits in Pencil

Art Start March 2013

Art Start students learned how to draw the proportions of the face.  The first day they drew a boy's face following a step-by-step process.  (You can see the worksheet propped on the mirror at left.)  Then the second class they drew self-portraits while looking in mirrors- no easy task!  Students chose which one they felt was the best drawing from those two classes and that's what I posted below.  Next, copying master portraits!
