Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Polar Bear and a Polar Bear Coloring Page. Narrow eyes and a small forehead let you know exactly who he is.
Polar Bear Drawing
Learning how to draw a polar bear doesn’t always have to show the entire body. Things get much more simple when you just focus on the face. No need to worry about the legs and arms and body — a white bear with a small forehead and long neck will say exactly who he (or she) is!
Now young students that are learning more (or are fans of) polar bears, have an easy option how to draw one. This tutorial will show how the proportions of the eyes, ears, nose and mouth, can make bear look much more like the polar variety, and not so much like the grizzly or other type of bear.
Why Draw with Guides?
You may have noticed that all of the tutorials on this website have a dashed vertical line and horizontal line running through the center of each step. If students make their own centered lines on their own paper, before drawing, they will have an easy reference to follow. All they need to do is fold their sheet of paper in half both ways, make a crease, and unfold. The best part is, by the time the drawing is done and colored in, the creases will have disappeared!
