This week pupils from Years 5 and 6 have started our Halloween project in Arts and Crafts. It is called “Who is behind the mask?”. We began by making a portrait. We reviewed correct proportions and how to draw facial features.
Now we know that our face is oval-shaped, like an egg upside down. We also know that we have to make guidelines to show where our eyes, nose, mouth and ears go. It’s very funny where our eyes generally are, in the center of the oval.
At home we have to complete our self-portrait with the help of a mirror and then outline with a black marker.
Next week, using the same oval as a guideline, we’ll design a mask. The mask doesn’t have to be an oval, but can be larger, have added horns, a half-mask, etc.
Meanwhile here you have this video to learn how to draw a face.
