Drawing and Shading the Mouth in Graphite – High School Visual Art Lesson


Product Description

These skill builder drawing the mouth worksheets are great for introducing portrait drawing. They are easy to use and ready to go, so they also make great sub plans. Students can click the links or scan the worksheets to see a video demonstration from any device. The worksheets also include an instructional handout and rubric to help with easy grading.


Students learn how to see the mouth as a series of simple shapes and create smooth transitions of value. Isolating the facial features and practicing each one at a time is a great way to build student confidence and ease them into portrait drawing.


These worksheets are great to have on hand for when you teach multiple levels of middle or high school art at a time, have students in ISS or home instruction, need an early finisher activity, or need a supplement for your portrait drawing lesson.



  • Four worksheets with nose reference images and links to video demonstrations
  • An instructional handout with drawing tips specific to noses
  • A video presentation
  • Rubrics for easy grading.
  • QR codes that students can scan to see the videos even if you haven’t loaded them onto a digital platform.
