Top Subjects:  Animals   Art/Architecture   Geography   Health   History   Math   Reading   Science
Resource:YouTube: Learn to Draw Portraits
Provider:Learn To Draw Portraits
Summary:Age Range: 10-18 (Grades 5-12, with parental supervision). PARENTAL WARNING: The lessons featured today are on YouTube.com. While the content of the “Learn To Draw Portraits” lessons that we have reviewed are suitable for general audiences, the YouTube format is such that you may see questionable content in the sidebars and/or in the comment section (below the video).
Description:Both sections continually change. Parents, AS ALWAYS, should review the lessons WITH their children.

This ClickScholar recommended website offers a series of free lessons on how to draw portraits — no previous experience necessary! The artist who developed this entertaining series prefaces the lessons with lectures that offer scientific explanations on how the human eye and brain perceive light and form. Understanding the science behind the art removes the “mystery” of how to create portraits and makes it seem “doable” for amateurs and reluctant artists.

When you get to the site the lessons are listed to the right. Simply select a lesson, watch the video and enjoy the lecture by this quirky, laid back, and very talented artist-instructor. There are 12 video lessons in all that cover:
  • Value and Contrast
  • Graphite and Eraser
  • Sketching
  • Value Shapes
  • Measuring
While that short list above may seem mundane – the lecture/demonstrations are engaging and you’ll be drawing portraits in no time at all. We posted the age range as 10 and up, but there are aspects of these video lessons that younger children may enjoy as well with constant parental supervision.

The artist, who introduces himself as “Jason,” is also a speed-painter with a sense of humor. In fact, taking a cue from the popular comedian Jeff Foxworthy, he suggests “you might be a redneck if you finger-paint with barbeque sauce”— and, just for fun, demonstrates how to do it on his YouTube channel, Eclectic Asylum Art.

Better stock up on the BBQ sauce before sharing this video with the kids — they’re sure to want to try it!
