Grade 3 and Facial Proportions




Last week the 3rd graders practiced portraits and drew guidelines to help with the placement of facial features.  Next week we will be working with the portrait mirrors and they will be making a self portrait to put onto a cut out backing that resembles a hand mirror.

Here a couple of finished mirrors from 2 students that were done several years ago.  I think this group of third graders will do just as well.  They seemed to really be interested in the practice we did with the facial guidelines.

Love it "in" the mirror like that! Very cute!

I love drawings from children. They are so free of convention and literally so honest. Much like Gauguin's work.
