How to Draw a Spider

A drawing of a spider, made with the help of an easy step by step tutorial.

Sure, most people can draw something quick that kinda looks like a spider, but why not stop, add some details, and draw one that looks much more realistic.

Students can first draw a simple web, and then add the spider body parts on top. The coloring is easy as a good black marker will make the darkest and clearest black lines, and then a crayon color can go right on top. Just advise students to test their colors first, as some crayons are more transparent than others.

This makes a fun Halloween drawing project, but also, what better way to learn (and remember!) that spiders have eight walking legs, and insects have six? Drawing is kind of amazing in that way.
