Draw a Simple Fox

Young students can learn how to draw a simple fox with the help of this step by step tutorial. Coloring him with oil pastels will really help him stand out on black paper.

This very simple fox tutorial works with lots of different media. Tempera or watercolor paint are also good options, but no matter which you choose, encourage your students to make really thick lines. It will help your fox have a very bold look, which is nice to have with such bright and contrasting colors like blue and orange and green.
