Lately, Nadia has been showing a lot of interest in drawing. She showed me this drawing last night of a her home. It shows a house, a tree, a pet dragon, Ozzie and her playing. How lovely!
It occurred to me that this may be a good time to start teaching her how to draw animals. I found this really cool blog online – http://artforkidshub.com/, definitely take a look if you are looking for creative things to do with your children.
We started by drawing a Monkey swinging from the vines. I walked Nadia through this step by step.
I asked her what next? And she said can we add a lion and an elephant.
So I walked her through those step by step…
She then used a black marker to darken the pencil drawing…
She then colored away…
I am really impressed at how this turned out. I learned to draw and helped Nadia learn too…how awesome 🙂
Have a great weekend!
