Book of the Month - Usborne Art Ideas: Drawing Faces

1st December 2017

Faces are often seen as one of the most difficult things to draw, but this simple step-by-step guide will help children to feel confident in creating their own portraits, caricatures and cartoons.

This activity packed guide explores a range of different techniques, from watercolours, to printing, to drawing on a computer - ideal for children keen to experiment with different methods and forms. Full of examples of the different ideas in action, it is great for inspiring lots of creativity.

The book also gives young artists advice on caring for their art equipment, and lots of top tips for getting the most out of the different types of art materials. Plus, additional links are provided throughout to more guidance on the Usborne Quicklinks website.  

Our favourite pages are definitely the paper collage and the cartoons. We love the buildable nature of both of them, and the fact that you don't need many resources to be able to create something really spectacular.
