International Left Handers Day

This day (13th August)  raises awareness about the advantages and disadvantages of being left-handed, considering that only 10% of the world’s population are left-handed!

Your dominant hand is the one that you perform most tasks with, like writing.

Your non-dominant hand is the other hand.

If your dominant hand is your right hand, then your left hand is your non-dominant hand, and vice versa.


For this project, you will draw two portraits of yourself by looking at yourself in a mirror, or from a photo. One portrait will be done using your dominant hand, and the other portrait with your non-dominant hand.

Make sure the size of your portrait fills up the whole page!

Materials you will use from this box:

  • 2pc A3 Paper
  • 4B Graphite pencil
Project Peek
