Basic Shapes to Create Cartoon Faces
by S.A. Barone 

In my art classes the students loved to draw cartoons. We used basic shapes, like squares,
triangles, rectangles, oval and circles.

The students used lines, straight, slanted, curly, wavy, crooked, vertical and horizontal to create
their characters faces and give them personalities.

Sometimes the student would make up and entire comic strip with their characters.


Lots of white drawing paper

Pencil for drawing

Glue and scissors optional

Some of the students would create another world on a separate piece of paper, draw their
characters faces cut them out and place them in their scene. Whichever way they chose they
always came up with interesting and fun cartoons.

Have Fun and Keep Creating!
