Sketchbook # 5: Draw and shade 2 eyes, 2 noses, and 2 mouths. Each feature should be a different age, race, or ethnicity. 1 of each feature(1 eye, 1 nose, 1 mouth) should be labeled with brief descriptors of that individual feature. The purpose is NOT to generalize or stereotype cultures or different ethnicities. The purpose is to be more aware of the amazing variations and complexities of the human face.
Descriptions should be focused on visual evidence and observational study- NOT opinion based.
Example statements to write next to your drawing:
· These eyes are smaller with single eye lid showing, crease touches eyelash line with corners titled downwards.
· Here is a nose with a narrow frame, rounded end, & pointed upwards.
Descriptive words choices: narrow, wide, upwards, downwards, tilted, full, smaller, larger, sharper/ defined, rounded, pointed, flat, spaced, curved, angled.
