Dali's Moustache Portrait Drawing

This is a portrait drawing lesson I teach as part of my Salvador Dali unit to Grade 6 students. 
See my other Dali lesson HERE. This lesson was inspired by the one posted HERE on the Australian art blog "Use your Colored Pencils".

So we start of by looking at photos of all of Dali's crazy moustaches. Then I do a portrait drawing review and give them handouts with photos of Dali on it. 

They skecth out their Dali portrait in pencil then go over all the lines with a black marker.

For the background, students could do whatever crazy ideas they wanted. Some added ants, melting clocks or other typical Dali imagery. Hot glue on a pipe cleaner moustache as the last step. 
I love how fun and silly these are!
