Easter Egg Tutorial Video
The best part about learning how to draw an Easter Egg is that it is so easy to make them look a little bit real. Students that are just learning how to draw will get a chance to instantly see what a difference a few lines can make. Draw an egg and add a bunch of straight lines across, and you get something that my be pretty, but totally flat. On the other hand, make those lines have a slight curve to them and you have an instantly looking round egg. That’s what happens when a line goes around something round, and then is viewed from the side. And once students understand that concept, they can add the idea to all kinds of familiar round shapes. Makes for a great first lesson about drawing with dimension!
