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!
I'm not sure where I originally got this lesson plan from because I had it planned before blogging, and really I can't remember life before blogging. Anyway, I used it for my Art Focus class (a relaxing art program for students that, well, needed to relax) after school on Mondays. Here some of the results:

I get to play!HGTV. And since we are moving in 1 1/2 weeks no point in me doing any apartment changes. Enter cheap target table. I stole the paisley pattern from Lilly Pulitzer. I think I am going to line the side edges with some sort of small teal or cobalt blue colored tile or glass, but we'll see. I love impromptu projects!
