Learn how to draw a Cruise Ship that is taking off to sea. The simple shapes make it a good beginner drawing project.
For students that are learning about transportation, or perhaps want to dream up an exotic vacation getaway to Timbuktu, drawing a giant cruise ship might be just the ticket. This one is full of large and simple shapes and could even include a little lesson about perspective. After all, seagulls that are closer will always look larger than those that are far away. It’s what perspective is based on, and teaches students to pay attention to the size and scale of things in their drawing too.
