Learn how to draw a fox with an easy step by step tutorial. This one helps students fill their paper with a large, symmetrical face that has all kinds of coloring options.
Now students have some help in learning how to draw just the face of a fox. This drawing is shown as a red one, but you easily swap it to gray and white, or gray and brown, etc. Whatever the choice though, I recommend that students try coloring those fuzzy edges around the eyes, nose and chest the way my sample shows. The black line is left off intentionally so that the two colors can share a fuzzy edge. So much more lifelike!

Materials for How to Draw a Fox Face
- Pencil. The Ticonderoga brand are the most reliable, make nice dark lines when you need them, and are the easiest to erase. Buying the pre-sharpened ones will save busy teachers a lot of time.
- Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tip erasers, especially when erasing leftover pencil lines after tracing.
- Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make nice black outlines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath to protect your tables.
- Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you buy their larger boxes.
- Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that seem a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.
