draw a nutcracker

My tutorial on how to draw a nutcracker is designed to counteract the tendency for young artists to draw really small. One way to correct that is to require the drawing touch the top and bottom of the paper. This nutcracker does just that, and with very simple shapes too.

MATERIALS
• Multimedia paper
• Sharpie permanent marker
• Crayons
• Liquid watercolor paint

DIRECTIONS
PREP: Print or draw guidelines on paper.
1. Students draw the nutcracker according to the tutorial. If you are using this for kinders, then I recommend giving them all a rectangle to trace for Step 1.
2. The drawing is traced with the permanent marker.
3. Crayons are used to color the face.
4. The nutcracker is painted with watercolor paint.
