For this lesson, I had the kids divide their paper into sections and search for facial features. This would be a great sketchbook lesson to keep up with throughout the year.
Once they practiced the individual facial features, they had to choose a frontal portrait, fold it down the center and complete the other half. They were to use the rules of proportion to make sure things were placed correctly. (I also took the other half of the face so there would be no temptation to trace!)
