Profile Portraits in Pen: Free Lesson Plan Download

Level: High School Art Education Lesson Plan
Art Elements: Line, Value
Art Skills: Value through Hatching and Cross-Hatching, Portraiture
Art History: Juan Francisco Casas Ruiz

In this lesson, students are challenged to draw a common subject (a profile portrait) with an uncommon drawing medium (ballpoint pen). It is a great challenge for students to become comfortable enough with the pen in order to create a successful drawing. It circles back to beginning drawing techniques such as hatching and cross-hatching, yet takes them to an entirely different level as students work toward a realistic portrait.
