We had so much fun doing this fun face drawing project. I was inspired by one of my favorite go to art project sites,
Art Projects for Kids : http://www.artprojectsforkids.org/2013/01/big-face-painting-tutorial.html
I made a few changes to connect with our winter/seasonal unit.
Student started with a pre-folded piece of long landscape paper. They drew a large U shape. Half way down from the fold they drew a small horizontal line (the start of the nose). Each facial element was drawn together using a red light/green light stopping and starting process.
Once the face was drawn the students could unfold their paper and add a very tall hat. The drawings were colored with crayon and color pencils and a pompom added the finishing touch.
The National Endowment for the Humanities has created a series of 9 short videos to connect with works of art from the classroom series of prints. These films integrate not only art themes but also connect to literature and social studies. Watch, learn and enjoy!
