3rd Grade Bubble Gum Portraits

To begin class, we talked about the basics of portrait drawing: your eyes are in the middle of your head, your head is 5 eyes wide, your neck is as wide as your pupils, etc. I had the students make a face like they were blowing a big bubble and look in the mirror. Using what they learned in combination with their reflections, they drew their portrait in pencil first. Then, they spent a class period painting everything. At the very end, we outlined with black markers and stuck on pink balloons to act as the “bubble gum.”
