Side View of Face Lesson


Lesson Goals: Drawing a Side View of Face from existing Front View of Face

Outcomes Targeted: GCO 1.4 Demonstrate increasing complexity in art skills and techniques

I Can Statement: I can effectively create a believable side view of a face from an existing front
view of face

Key Vocabulary and Reference lines, profile, contour


Material Needed: Ruler, pencil, tape, and 8.5x11 drawing paper for each student, 18x24
drawing paper, red crayon, black crayon, meter stick, LED Projector, sample pcs
of front and side view faces

Your Learners: A group of Grade 8 students with assorted range of abilities.


I. Introduction (Teacher organized)

Side View of Face Lesson

Explain how the masks that they will be constructing will be 3 dimensional so they must also be aware of what the
masks will look like from the side. As well, we want the mask to be able to fit comfortably over the face so we must be
aware of how the side view of the face looks in order to build it into our design.
Discuss how animators must figure out how a character will look when facing different directions. The challenge is to
create a front and side view of a character that look believable. Remember that the positioning and size of the parts
of the face do not change when the head turns. Ie The bottom of the nose from the side is still positioned half way
between the eye line and the chin.
Show visual examples of front and side views of same person.

Show examples of front and side view with construction lines.

Driving Question: How can I use the front view of a face to help accurately draw the side view?

Time Allotted: 15min. + 30 min = 45minutes

II. Guided Learning (Teacher/student collaboration)

Demonstrate and explain how to create a side view of a face using construction lines from a front view of a face.

Demonstration: Tape blank sheet of paper to right side of drawing of front view of face.
Using red crayon (light lines for students) and metre stick, extend proportion lines from face onto the
blank paper. Lightly label each line appropriately. Ie eye line, nose line, mouth line.
Explain while demonstrating, how the face drawing can be used to find the appropriate size and placement of each
feature on the side view.
Use examples of side views to help figure out how you want the shape of your drawings side view to look. Ie How far
will the nose protrude? What does the hair look like from the side?
Discuss questions and concerns.

Time Allotted: 15 min

III. Collaborative Learning (Student focused activity)

Leave demo up for students to refer to, but also leave sample photo on screen
front and side view of face samples

Procedure: 1. Instruct and help students attach their blank paper to their existing front view of face drawing.
2. Reminding students how to extend construction lines from existing drawing to new paper.
3. Assist students as needed, to use the construction lines to reestablish the location of the key parts of the
face, while helping them to imagine and interpret what these parts look like from the side.
4. Students can help each other, and can find examples of face side views online to help visualize.

Time Allotted: 30 min

IV. Grand Finale End of class sharing:

Share and discuss results

Time Allotted: 10 minutes


Give guidance and assistance to each student as needed. Encourage students to try on their own, and help each other
but be prepared to assess level of assistance required for each student.
Assessment and Evaluation:

Students get 1/1 for trying and effort

Adaptations and IPPs:

The Level of adaptations will depend on the needs of each student.

Repeating directions,
Re- demonstrating steps, giving step prompts
Assisting in adjusting drawings with student permission
Seating student closer to demonstration area
Frequent check- ins
