Learn how to draw an easy rose, with enough detail to make the flower look dimensional, but not so much to make it difficult to do.

This tutorial will show them how pretty a single rose can be, with just a few delicate petals, and a slightly curving stem. They can lose all the frustration of drawing a complicated flower, without losing any of the charm.
