Keep your Santa Claus drawing easy by making him with symmetrical shapes. It really helps students see and draw in a logical kind of way.
Coloring Santa will call for some bright red media, against a blue sky, if you are going for realism. Markers, crayons and colored pencils will all work great. I’d avoid the oil pastels for this as it would just be too hard not to smear over all that white trim. Nope, Santa needs a little more precision than that. Pastels are great for when smears actually add to the look, not take anything away.
