How to Draw Practically Anything (As Long as It Barks, Quacks, or Roars)

November 28, 2006 @ 7:10 am | Filed under: Art

Here’s a fun site for the kids! And mom too, for that matter. How to Draw It is the gift of Santa Fe artist Pam Neely to sketchers-in-training everywhere. Her site features step by step instructions for drawing simple, charming animals—everthing from mice to unicorns, from hippos to seahorses. You can even subscribe for free weekly drawing lessons via email. Each lesson includes a delightful snippet of poetry about the animal in question.

These are great pages to print out and give to the kids. I know my little gang will have fun with these lessons!

  1. I love this site, Lissa! The adorable verses are especially fun! The children are going to flip over this one.

  2. Thanks Lissa! This is perfect timing. We have been doing ten minutes of drawing at our Family school (or what the kids call Breakfast school). My kids are very intimidated by drawing and all claim they can’t, so we decided from now until Christmas we’d draw every morning for ten minutes. These little exercises will fit perfectly into our new routine.

    Thanks so much!

  3. What a great site, Lissa! Thank you!

  4. Marianna will enjoy this! As you say, if it Barks, Quacks, or Roars, she will want to draw it.
