Looking for some easy cartoon characters to draw for kids?

You’ve come to the right place as there are dozens of tutorials here for how to draw all the kinds of cartoon characters that kids know and love. You can find everything from Among Us to Super Woman, and more projects are added all the time.

As a former classroom art teacher, I spent years watching students go through the process of learning how to draw. In time it became clear to me that some extra support could be helpful. Many students were often unsure about how to start or how to continue, especially when they felt stuck. Direct drawing instructions on the front board did work for a little while, but had limitations.

The solution? Create my own step by step handouts that students could easily follow on their own.

The biggest benefit to using printed tutorials was that everyone could finally work independently. Nine simple illustrated steps allowed them all to work at their own pace. The low-tech format (no screens needed!) also meant they could printed or emailed for distance learning, if need be. I believe they are a great way to help students build their confidence, and take some of the mystery out of drawing.
