Leonardo da Vinci was fascinated with faces. Look at faces like Leonardo did to make original self-portraits.
Leonardo was fascinated with human idiosyncrasies, and filled notebooks with his sketches of facial features. You can use Leonardo's observational techniques to create a self-portrait. Look at your own face in a mirror. Think about something that makes you really happy. You'll see a smile forming, and all of the changes in your face that accompany the smile: your cheeks rise, and your eyes may close slightly, creating laugh lines. These lines, which extend down from your nose on either side of your mouth, will deepen, and dimples may form. What other changes do you see?
Now think about something that makes you sad. How does your face change? Try making your face show other emotions, such as surprise or indignation.
On white paper, use Crayola® Washable Markers to draw your face showing one of the emotions with which you experimented. Look at your reflection in the mirror as you draw so you can include details.
Color your portrait with Crayola Crayons.
