Legos and Self Portraits

self portrait ideas
I have used this as a first project of the year quite often the template helps all skill levels get off to a good start, and still has lots of room for creative interpretation.

My template is left empty in the middle so students can alter the clothing pretty easily.

 

MATERIALS

  • LEGO Template (see below)
  • Printer
  • Drawing paper
  • Black Sharpie marker
  • Crayons or Colored Pencils

DIRECTIONS

  1. Print or copy a template for each student.
  2. Students turn the lego body into themselves by customizing the clothing, hair and facial features.
  3. Something else much be added to the hands or background to share a personal interest of theirs.
  4. All the lines are traced with a black marker.
  5. The drawing is colored neatly with crayons or colored pencils.
