Color variations on a face

| | ,

18 facce

In a previous lesson we learned how to draw a female face following a geometric framework. In this exercise we added color variations on hair, lips, makeup and t-shirt, using colored pencils. In the first step is very important to follow the instructions in order to draw the right proportion for eyes, nose and mouth. In the second step we can draw any kind of  hairstyle and makeup. The face has been cut out and pasted on a black cardboard. The portraits are very different at the end, everyone with its own personality, look and expression. We carried out this project with 8th grade students, in 4 hours.
We need this materials:

  • drawing sheet
  • pencil and rubber
  • ruler and compasses
  • colored pencils
  • scissors and glue
  • black cardboard
