University of Maryland Baltimore Proportioned Face Drawing


Art Activity: Drawing

First, watch the video above for a tutorial on how to draw faces.

Now, go back and follow along with the instructor, drawing either the male or female face. Pause, go back, or slow down the video as needed.

If you have art pencils, use those. If not, a standard pencil is fine. An eraser would also be a very useful tool. You will not be graded on your “artistic skill.” To get full points, you need to have a properly proportioned face, that shows that you made a sincere effort to follow the guidelines outlined in the video. Feel free to have fun with it, and customize the face to look however you want.
