When it’s time to draw the symbols of China, learning how to draw a panda with easy step by step directions is a fun place to start.
This panda has all the qualities I would look for, when showing young elementary students how to draw a panda. The head and body are made with simple shapes that easily distinguish between the black and white parts, and he (or she) is sitting in a nice, balanced way. Symmetrical images are always helpful as you only really need how to figure out how to draw half of the animal, and then copy for the rest.
