The human/animal portrait idea sounds like one I'd like to try. I've done
something similar. My students draw human skulls (thanks to the science
department) in preparation to learning how to draw their faces. After
drawing their final self-portarait they may do another portrait, half
skull/half face, for extra credit. Super results with 8th graders. Since the
topic is camouflage I may have students try drawing skulls with one medium
and superimpose their faces upon them in another medium. Hmmm.. Sometimes I
use a half human face/half animal face lesson. At the vertical line where
the two faces meet students must create a "morphing" transition, so you
can't see where one face starts and one ends. I know these don't have much
to do with camouflage, but they came to mind and thought they might pique
someone's imagination.
