Product Description
This is an assignments sheet that encourages students to draw different types of people. I find often students might get stuck in drawing a certain type of person or character, and it's hard to branch out from that one style. This is a one page assignment sheet that includes a chart for students to mix and match facial features. It asks students to divide their page into 9 squares and to develop 9 different, unique faces. Then, choosing their favourite draw one larger. The chart includes 7 categories including lips, nose, eyes, hair, accessories, personality, and face shape. Students mix and match from each category to create different faces. For example they could develop a character with: An angry character with an oval shaped face, Elvis style lips, turned up nose, a mohawk and high cheekbones.
Or another example could be a Shy person with a heart shaped face, small lips, shifty eyes, wide nose, spiky hair and skinny eyebrows.

This helps guide creativity for students, and practice portrait drawing. I would pair this assignment with portrait drawing lessons, shading, and drawing facial features.

This would be suitable for middle years, junior high, and grades 9 and 10. It might work for grade 11 as well.

Depending on the length of your classes, and your age of students this activity would probably take about 2 classes to complete the 9 characters, and then another 2 to draw a larger portrait. It may take longer than that, depending on how much time you want the students to spend developing shading on the faces.
