Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Squirrel Monkey and a Squirrel Monkey Coloring Page. This adorable animal lives in tropical forests.
Squirrel monkeys live in rainforests, which are getting smaller by the day. Drawing one is a good way to share an awareness of these amazing and adorable creatures.
This tutorial is designed for young artists to try out as the shapes are all rather large and rather simple. Squirrel monkeys do have some detailed coloring going on, with several shades of brown all around their bodies. Drawing them one step at a time though, will always make it easier to see and do.
