Before diving into drawing, make sure your child has the right supplies:

  • Sketchbook or Drawing Paper: A good quality sketchbook or drawing paper provides a smooth surface for sketching.
  • Pencils: Start with basic pencils; a set of different hardness (H, HB, B) can be helpful.
  • Eraser: A soft eraser helps in correcting mistakes without damaging the paper.
  • Colored Pencils or Crayons: These are great for adding color and detail to the drawings.

Step-by-Step Guide to Drawing Animals

  1. Simple Shapes First: Start by drawing simple shapes like circles, ovals, and rectangles. These will form the base structure of the animal.
    • Example: For a cat, start with an oval for the body and a circle for the head.
  2. Outline the Body: Once the basic shapes are in place, outline the body of the animal. Connect the shapes smoothly to form the animal’s body.
    • Example: Connect the circle and oval with curved lines to form the cat’s neck and body.
  3. Add Details: Add features like eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and tail. Pay attention to the animal’s specific characteristics.
    • Example: Draw the cat’s pointed ears, whiskers, and tail.
  4. Refine and Erase: Refine the drawing by adding more details and smoothing out the lines. Erase any unnecessary guidelines.
    • Example: Smooth out the cat’s body and add fur details.
  5. Color Your Drawing: Use colored pencils or crayons to bring your animal to life. Choose colors that match the animal’s natural appearance.
    • Example: Color the cat with shades of gray, brown, or black.
