Learner objective:

  • Drawing the human face.

    (2 minutes)

Bridging:

  • Last class, students identified drawing as a resource to help their learning. Today they learn to draw the human face.
    (3 minutes)

Pre-assessment:

  • “What are some of the drawing experiences you have had in school other than in art class?”
  • “What are the parts of human face?”
    (5 minutes)

Learning Activities:

  • Instructor: Describes how to draw an oval in the middle of the paper sheet.
  • Learner: Opens notebook and identifies how to draw an oval.
    (3 minutes)
  • Instructor: Explains how to draw with pencil, four lines to divide the oval. Three lines vertical and another horizontal line. First divided the oval in half vertically with the first line, then divided each half in half vertically. Then divided the oval in half horizontally with the final line.
  • Learner: Draw three lines vertical on the oval, and another horizontal as described above.
    (2 minutes)

    Note from LessonPlansPage.com: We at LessonPlansPage.com are following along with this lesson and this is what we have built so far:

  • Instructor: Describes how to draw the eyebrows over the horizontal line.
  • Learner: Draw two wavy lines over the horizontal line as the eyebrow.
    (5 minutes)
  • Instructor: Describes how to draw the eyes below the horizontal line.
  • Learner: Draw two little circles below the horizontal line as the eyes.
    (2 minutes)
  • Instructor: Describes how to draw the eyes below the horizontal line.
  • Learner: Draw four triangles. Two at left sides of the circle, two at right sides.
    (2 minutes)
  • Instructor: Instructs students to draw a second line parallel to the horizontal line, dividing the low part of the oval in two, and then draw the nose.
  • Learner: Draw a wavy line on the second horizontal line using the central vertical line as reference.
    (3 minutes)
  • Instructor: Instructs students to draw a third horizontal line parallel to the others, horizontally dividing the bottom section at a little less half, and then draw the mouth.
  • Learner: Draw two wavy lines united on the third horizontal line using the central vertical line as reference.
    (3 minutes)
  • Instructor: Instructs students to draw a pair of ovals at both sides of the face.
  • Learner: Draw two ovals at both sides of the principal oval, beginning close to the first horizontal line and ending close to the second one.
    (2 minutes)
  • Instructor: Explain that the rest of the drawing will be completely freehand.
  • Learner: Apply freehand drawing to build the hair.
    (3 minutes)

    Note from LessonPlansPage.com: Following along as a student, this is what we came up with using our computer and limited drawing skills. Your students will come up with much cuter pictures we are sure:

  • Instructor: “Now it is time to erase all of the straight guide lines.”
  • Learner: Erase pencil horizontal and vertical lines to show the result of the lesson.
    (3 minutes)

Summary:

  • The students learned how to draw the human face. They displayed the steps to draw the human face to reach the outcome.
  • The students manipulated the pencil and distinguished orders.
  • The students displayed the human face in a drawing.
    (3 minutes)

Post-Assessment:

  • Instructor: “What are the steps to draw the human face?”
  • Students: Students describe steps to drawing human face.
    (5 minutes)

Linkage:

  • Now students can display the human face in a drawing. In our next class, they are going to learn how to draw the human body, using techniques we used in this class.
