In the Art Room - Cowboys

The second graders had a portrait lesson where they focused on drawing facial features in proportion.  Some of them got it, some of them didn't, but they all had fun drawing their old west cowboys! These cowboys are adorable!


  1. Oh, I really like this project. I have some classes with lots of boys. They would love such a project!
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks! I gave everyone the same jumping off point (which is hard to describe so bear with me!). I drew a long curved line near the top middle of the page. We used this line to build the hat and know where to start the head shape.

  3. This looks like a fun project. I'll have to try this. thanks!
