Positive Negative/ Black White Paper Faces

click to enlarge

Hand students alternating backgrounds- black and white, with an equal amount of the opposite color.  Have each student write his or her name on the back of the background piece (otherwise you will end up with too many of one or another)... Distribute a smaller amount of the background color for contrasting details. I gave the students a sample sheet of eyes, noses, mouths, hats, beards, and moustaches that could be used for reference (cartoon style).  They did not have to use the reference, but I knew that if I wanted it done in one period....
Fun was had by all!
