In the Classroom: The Human Face

Pat Benard subbed for an 8th grade class at Bowman Middle School. She explained the difference between symbolic and realistic drawing  and presented a brief lesson on the proportions of the human face. The students drew a quick portrait on posterboard of the person sitting next to them. Then they selected scraps of material and cut out the shapes of the face, features, and shoulders and made a collage by gluing them on the posterboard. They then used colored construction paper as a backing and frame. She and the students were all very pleased with the results.
