Facial Tattoos or Face Painting

Students use a grid-like method to create a life-size self-portrait from a 3X5 black and white photo. They explore the different customs and rituals surrounding face painting from ancient through modern civilizations. Students create a symmetrical design on their portrait drawing which fits the contour and shape of their face. Additional cross curriculum activities are listed.
