Here’s how to draw a goose with a slightly different pose. The turned neck fills the paper in a nice and balanced way.
Most young artists tend to draw small. That’s why I like adding the two guide lines in the middle of the paper to help them judge where to place their first lines.
You can crease the paper to get them, or actually draw them (lightly!) with a pencil. They are especially useful for this goose so he or she has their belly on the bottom half of the paper, and the neck and head on top.
If you like the bold look of this drawing, it’s probably because of the thick black line that comes from using a chisel tip permanent black marker. It’s a nice option when drawing large, as the quirky lines that children make so well, will really stand out.
Note: Have some more advanced students? Challenge them to add a shadow so their goose looks more realistic.
