Wild Hair Self Portrait

The itinerant art teacher at my school, Melissa Kehr, shared with me this lesson and it was a lot of fun! Students drew linear self-portraits in pencil. When they got to their hair they would draw a circular bubble shape that runs off the page and fill it with their name written in stylized letters. As far as the handwriting fonts were concerned I let the students come up with their own. They traced the whole picture with Sharpie markers and colored their hair, eyes, lips, and clothing with crayon.
