My six year old LOVES to draw. This morning she used a video by John Steven Gurney on the Art Snacks learning community to draw a reversible face. This is the “man version:”

Rachel's drawing

Turned upside down, this is the “baby version!”

Turn it over: It's a crying baby!

Rachel recorded an explanation of how she used Art Snacks to learn how to draw this, using iPadio on my iPhone.

Here’s the 2.5 minute video from John in which he shows how to make this drawing!
