Cubism Face with Markers

It’s also a easy way for students to draw self portraits. All they need to do is add their own hair for their own Picasso-style self portrait.




  1. I like to use Sharpies on finger painting paper as the colors stay so bright. The only catch is that the paper is a little hard to erase. But if you follow the simple steps in my diagram, you should be able to start with a nice pencil drawing.
  2. Trace all the lines with a thick, chisel-tip black Sharpie marker.
  3. Fill in with Sharpies. I recommend the brush tip markers, if you can afford them.
