Draw an Easy Robot

Learn how to draw an easy robot and finish it with this combination of silver tempera and black watercolor paint. The contrast will add some extra fun.

Metallic tempera paint is one of the most inexpensive ways I know to add some bling to your student’s art. And what better subject matter than something metallic and fun to draw?

For maximum contrast, try using watercolor paint for the background. The contrast of the dull and shiny will really make your robots stand out.
