Grafix Lesson Plan: Lesson 7

Project Description: The student will draw the facial features on Grafix Shrink film.

  • Grafix Lesson Plan_ Lesson 7 Picture 1

Designed by: Virginia Berthelot

Difficulty: Moderately Challenging


  • Grafix Clear or Super Sanded Shrink Film
  • Paper and pencil for sketching
  • Permanent markers for use with Clear Shrink Film
  • Colored pencils for use with Super Sanded Shrink Film
  • Canvas board or art paper (65 lb. or more) for display
  • Glue (Elmer’s or E600)

Steps to Make This:

  1. Share the biography of Pablo Picasso and samples of his portrait paintings.
  2. Using a mirror, have the students sketch out each face feature individually as they see it.
  3. Next put their sketch under the Clear Shrink Film or Super Sanded Shrink Film and use permanent markers or colored pencils to trace and color their facial features.
  4. Cut out features and shrink according to package instructions.
  5. On a background surface have students place and outline where they want to place their features. And then design the rest of their cubist portrait.
  6. When finished with their portrait background, glue down their features.
  7. Display portraits and have a class critique.
