When kids are learning how to draw, one really large area to explore is the world of animals. They might be exotic ones that live in a far away land, or are part of classroom studies, or maybe even just the family pet. Either way, animals are sure to include practice drawing bodies of all shapes and sizes, and mostly likely be something kids are already fascinated with. Below are a few of the most popular animal drawing projects in the collection. A click on any image will take you to that project.
One way to keep kids interested in drawing animals is to support them in getting some quick and happy results. Drawing for hours from fuzzy photos without any advice would frustrate anyone. That’s where step by step instructions, made with clear and simple lines, come in. They do wonders to help kids see the edges of things, which photos will never provide. They can also tell them how to start, and then what is needed to finish. When kids can view all the steps at a glance, they can start to understand that drawings don’t just happen, they are kind of built, little by little and step by step. And, as with anything in life, they more care and attention they are given, the greater the possibilities of results. That’s why a large finished sample is included with each download. This 700+ collection of animals drawing projects is growing, so check back often to see what’s new.
