Learn how to draw a volleyball with an easy step by step tutorial. A marker and one light gray crayon can make it look a lot like the real thing.
Learning how to draw a volleyball is a wonderful way for students to learn how to turn a basic circle into something that looks round and dimensional. (Note: Elements of Art use LINES to give something FORM!) Afterwards, you can add a slight shadow around those black lines with a light gray crayon. Instant subtle shadow!
The game of volleyball, originally called “mintonette,” was invented in 1895 by William G. Morgan. Morgan, a graduate of the Springfield College of the YMCA, designed the game to be a combination of basketball, baseball, tennis, and handball. It’s come a long way as it is now one of the big five international sports with its 220 affiliated national federations, is the largest international sporting federation in the world.
