Lego Drawing Tutorial
There’s nothing like drawing what you know, so a fun self portrait project for kids might include learning how to draw a Lego. They certainly needn’t worry about details of their eyes, nose or mouth. And any clothes they are wearing must be turned into very simple block shapes.
That leaves lots of time to make some very neat block letters for their name, and something to hold that shares an interest of theirs. The same goes for coloring. Who ever saw a scribbly Lego? Cartoon coloring especially, calls for neat and careful work.
TIP: Whether your students are in your classroom or you are teaching online, I really recommend they fold their paper three times FIRST to get the dashed lines that are seen on all the steps. They really help students fill the paper, get things centered, and get out of any ‘tiny’ drawing habits.
