This PDF is 22 pages of high quality information on teaching and learning to draw portraits using accurate facial proportions. This is loaded with great information, tips, and visuals to walk students through the process of drawing realistic portraits. Topics covered are: face shapes, drawing guides to get accurate proportions, different eye, nose and mouth shapes, as well as hair. This packet is visually interesting and easy to follow. Pages could easily be copied for students to reference while they are working independently on their portraits or self portraits.
I teach the proportions of a face to my 5th graders and they do great with this packet as a resource. However, the tips inside could easily challenge students up to the high school level. After I have taught the proportions to my 5th graders they work independently, but this packet is easy to refer to when students have questions.
