Monster Drawing

Monsters have lived in children’s imagination from time in memorium, but rather than dwelling on any scary connections they have, it’s fun to mix them with a little creativity.

Eyes can be on the goofy side, sharp teeth with an underbite and claws on the floppy side. They all add up to something more silly than scary. Toss in the fact that there’s no one right way to draw them, and you have fertile ground for some imaginative artwork.

Think you like the idea, but that it might be too simple for your students? Then consider adding another twist, like asking students to add their own texture (one of the Elements of Art). They can draw their own implied texture (like fuzzy hair or bumpy skin) or do an actual crayon rubbing. That’s what simple drawing projects have to offer, they can be the starting point of something else.

Materials for a Monster Drawing

  • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
  • Pencils. I like how this brand always makes nice dark lines.
  • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a dark black color.
  • Crayons. The larger packs are nice for more color choices.
  • Note: All of the above are Amazon affiliate links.
