Thanks to Brooke from @MissIngramsAdventures for this fantastic art idea! Head on over and like her Instagram page for further awesome classroom activities and ideas!

What you need:

  • projector
  • magazines
  • glue stick
  • black A4 card
  • scissors

What to do:

  1. Option 1 – if you have access to a projector, ask students to stand side on and get a buddy to outline their face.
  2. Option 2 – if you don’t have a projector, take a photo of each student standing side on, print it out and turn the page over. Students put their page against a window and draw around their face.
  3. Students cut strips of paper from a magazine, ensuring they find different colours, textures and patterns and stick onto their face. They must cut their strip to size to fit their face, eg. around their nose.
  4. Once all strips have been stuck on, turn over your page, cut around the outline of the face and stick the face onto a piece of black card.
