Draw a Simple Cat

Learn how to draw a simple cat by starting with two circles, one for the head and one to help draw the curves of a nice chubby belly.

Circles are one of the harder shapes for them to draw, and I’ve found that a roll of masking tape is the perfect template for them to hold and trace.

Tracing provides valuable fine motor skill practice, and helps students start with a nice large head. It’s kind of hard to draw a nice face if you’re running out of room.
