What educators are saying

Excellent and rich resource to help support young students getting started with self-portraiture. Very much appreciate the inclusive styles.
Helpful for a non artistic teacher! Any ideas to get started ? Maybe pictures of themselves first? Or start practicing first? ?

Drawing a realistic self portrait can be a daunting and sometimes difficult task for students, no matter what age they are. That's why I created this step by step resource to help guide students in creating a self portrait they can feel confident about.

This resource provides short and sweet explanations for each drawing step as well as an accompanied visual that students can follow while creating their self portrait. Geared towards upper elementary and middle school students this drawing guide not only breaks down the anatomy of the human face but how to draw each individual facial feature, and provides over 30 different hair styles! It must be noted that even though all steps are provided, it's suggested that students all have access to a mirror or photograph to most accurately draw themselves.

This drawing guide can be used for so many different self portrait lessons and still allows you (the teacher) the freedom to teach self portraits using the materials of your choice. If you are looking for a simpler self portrait guide perfect for younger students then be sure to check out my Simple Self Portrait Guide here.

Happy Creating!
