First, drawing mountains is an easy and accessible skill for students of all ages and skill levels. It’s a great way to introduce your students to the joys of drawing, especially if they are new to it.
Moreover, drawing mountains can be incredibly cute and cool. With simple techniques like using pastels or drawing a cute animal on top of a mountain, students can create adorable and eye-catching art. This can be a fun way for students to explore their creativity and create something that they can be proud of.
Drawing mountains can also help students develop important drawing skills, such as drawing straight lines, shading, and perspective.

These skills can be applied to many other types of drawings and can be a great foundation for future art projects.
Finally, drawing mountains can be a great source of inspiration for simple drawing ideas. Once students have mastered the basics, they can take their mountain drawing skills to the next level by drawing landscapes, seascapes, or even other planets. This can be a fun and engaging way to expand their creativity and explore new ideas.
