The how to draw a swan tutorial below will show young artists how they can draw a very simple, yet very lovely swan. The outstretched wings and downward look of the head make a beautiful profile that is still very easy to draw.

One area that takes some practice to learn is learning how to draw gentle curves. A swan is the perfect subject matter for this kind of lesson. That neck will no doubt look not-quite-right until it’s made with a curve that is not too tight or too loose. And when students conquer it, their swan will look like the very graceful bird that they know and love.

  • 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.
