A perfect example of the everything learned prior to drawing their final portrait. This is what the final portrait should ultimately look like. They will have learned how to draw facial features, how to draw basic black and white value, and how to create an interesting composition zooming in on a portion of their face. I can't wait to see how they turn out.
After spending time teaching my students how to draw the "perfect" Greek face, we begin a collage. They search magazines to find similar size features, (old, young, male, female, children) and glue them in the proper place. Their challenge is to add what is missing and pull the variety of magazine cutouts together with colord pencils to create a face.
