I wanted to introduce correct facial proportion to m first graders here at the end of the school year to see if they could pull it off. They really did a great job. I pushed them to fold their traced oval in half to find the middle for the eye placement. The chin was folded up to the eye line to find the place for the nose and finally the chin was folded up to the nose to find the place for the mouth. After the self portrait was finished an ABAB pattern was added to the background. The drawings were outlined in black marker and colored with crayons.
Check out my YouTube I've been teaching elementary Art for 18 years the last eight at Becky-David in the Francis Howell School District. Teaching Art is a great job and I absolutely love it! My job is made easier by all the wonderful Art teachers out there who share their ideas and "secrets" with me personally and through the internet. Thank you!
