PanPastel Lesson Plan No.1

LESSON PLAN No.1 Facial Features with PanPastel & Colored Pencils Materials: Objectives: Create separate eye, nose and mouth drawings using PanPastel Colors and colored pencils. Students will understand the structure of these features through the application of values. Students will use PanPastel Colors as a base for skin tones and will use them to block in forms of each feature. Colored pencils will be used to add details. Grade Level: PanPastel Colors: Use a palette of limited colors / skin tones Colored Pencils: High quality colored pencils work best for this lesson Grounds: Bristol board, toned paper, drawing paper (at least 80 lb) or illustration board. (Smoother, heavyweight paper works best for this lesson.) Sofft Tools: For blending such as Knife with Cover No. 3 (oval) Miscellaneous: Paper towels and eraser Middle & High School Grades / Ages 11-18 APPLY WITH Pre-Lesson ideas: PANPASTEL COLORS Apply Pastel Color Like Paint TOOLS 1. Draw each feature on the board or use a projected image and ask students to sketch and label the anatomy of each feature. Example: for the eye, teacher would have an image of the eye with corresponding labels for pupil, sclera, iris, upper and lower lid. 2. Create pre-drawn worksheet with features of the face. Students should shade the planes of each feature to help them understand the forms. 3. Have students create a value scale from dark to light using two PanPastel Colors. Example: create a blended value scale using Violet (470.5) and Violet Tint (470.8). Blend the value scale using Sofft Tools. 4. Create a PowerPoint presentation with PanPastel and colored pencil media examples.

Supply students with photographs of nose, mouth, eye and appropriate drawing paper. Teacher Demonstration - 1 class period: teacher should demonstrate how to apply PanPastel to create an eye, nose or mouth. Teacher should then show students how to add details to the drawing using colored pencils. 1-3 class periods: students should either draw the image in a 5x5” area of the paper or use newsprint to grid and draw the image then shade the back with PanPastel and transfer each feature to appropriate sized paper. (See page 4). 4-6 class periods: students will begin adding base layers to each of their features. They should do one at a time, then move to the next feature.
