Portraits on Cardboard

How cool would it be to have an entire wall full of colorful portraits drawn on old pieces of cardboard? A group collage project from last year has me thinking about other possibilities...
1. This was made from a pizza box – I think I even like the rough cut edges, which are bound to happen if kids cut out their own.  The faces are drawn first with a skinny black marker.
2. To add a variety of line weight, a black Sharpie is used to trace some of the lines again so that there’s a mix of thick and thin.
3. Thr face is colored in with colored pencils. Don’t forget to add the whites to the eyes as that really makes them show up.
