This is another project my students completed recently for National Book Week. I got the idea here at Color, Collage and Much More.
After instructions about drawing the human face, Grade Two students used mirrors to draw and paint their own faces. I spent some time demonstrating how to achieve different skin tones and hair colours by mixing paints. We worked back into these paintings with coloured textas before cutting out the painting and gluing onto a coloured paper background. Students also included their favourite book as a collage element.
