Before Drawing - Self Portrait

Now we’ve tested the waters, we’ve warmed up, and taken a small rest – we’re ready to jump in again. This time we’re going to draw our own face! Once again, this isn’t a life or death situation. We’re to relax and just draw how we would any othe time. Draw as well as you can, and just know we’re going to see huge improvements over the six weeks.


Instruction: Set yourself up in front of your mirror. You want to be far enough away that you can see the whole of your face in the mirror without having to move. You want the mirror to be at a comfortable height that you’re comfortable when looking straight at it. Set your timer, and draw!

Materials: 2H/HB Pencil, paper, eraser

Timer: 25 mins
