More about Turkey Drawing

This How to Draw a Turkey lesson has proven to be a very successful drawing project over the years, and one that I would bring out for just about any age level. Most kinders can navigate drawing an oval, neck and fan shapes, and older students have fun adding more details to their feathers.

There’s even a little bit of radial symmetry drawing practice, in the way that the feathers radiate out from the body. Kinders can concentrate on that basic idea and the older ones can see how evenly they can distribute the lines. The most pleasing and balanced look will come from having the same number of feathers on one side as there is on the other.

Materials for a Turkey 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.
