An introduction to drawing heads and faces for younger children
This is an introduction to drawing heads and faces for younger children. It suggests ways in which the drawing of faces can be approached, giving guidance on what to say to the children. The unit stresses an 'additive' method of working on the drawing, slowly building the child's confidence in their ability.
Begin this unit by revising the concept of shape and how children can look for outline shapes when they draw. Look at the notes below to find some links to other units for ideas. For example, this project uses a similar method to the unit called 'drawing buildings'.
