More Portraiture

Sixth graders have finished work on their portraits and began assessment today.  I'm really impressed with everyone's effort during this unit.  Our learning goals were to draw a realistic portrait that demonstrates proper proportion and placement of facial features and to use value to show form.  Students completed a variety of practice exercises before starting on their final portrait which the drew from a black and white photo reference.
In looking back over their work today I found a couple of pre- instruction portraits tucked into sketchbooks and I'm posting them   too so you can see the growth and progress.

If you are looking for some good links to use in teaching pencil portraits their a lots of great videos on YouTube that will help students get started and don't forget to check out Mr. Curkovic's  link.  Lot's of great info, plus a solid rubric.
