AfroTextures: Self-Portrait

One of my favorite projects!
I walk students through how to draw a face, explain proportions and where things go. They practice in their sketchbooks, and then draw in pencil on card stock paper. Next they add five guidlines in the hair and add their first, last, or nickname in the "afro" area. They then outline everything in sharpie. They add different textures between the letters of their hair with the sharpie. Lastly, they outline the letters with glitter glue pens. The results are so fun, and always unique!
