Back to School Stick Portrait

Drawing stick people is usually a no-no for older students that are capable of doing more, but I’m thinking it might be fun to make them a starting point for this self-portrait, and level the playing field, so to speak, for the first art class of the year.
1. Students draw themselves in the simplest form, lines for arms and legs, simple shapes for clothes.
2. The lines are traced with a black Sharpie, and traced again to make them thick.
3. Students use a crayon to color in zig-zag format around the entire body. The process is repeated with a different color until the paper is filled up. The inside body is to remain white to create contrast with the background.
