Portrait Drawing


I teach a portrait drawing class once a week at my school. It's comprised of really dedicated art students from Grades 4-7. They choose this class so it's a lovely group of kids (all girls!)
The girls printed photo references off the internet. This was one of their finally projects once they had learned all about proportion, symmetry, practiced drawing all the different facial features, etc. 
Some of them used simply pencil, others watercolour pencils, coloured pencils and watercolours.

The student below (Grade 7) did a series of three drawings of Frances Bean Cobain:

I have to ask. Did your students trace the celebrity faces?

Rypo- nope-hand drawn. They had a photo to look at, though.

Well, you have some incredible talent in your class. I've been teaching grade 7s for some time now and your students' sense of proportion is unprecedented.

Hi Rypo, yes, students choose this class as an elective, so generally the 'top' or gifted art students take the class. This project was a culmination of weeks of work on proportion, symmetry and drawing each facial feature one by one. It definitely didn't just happen in one class!
