Oakey doakey, onto the reason for todays post. All children love creating but it can be difficult for them to draw something recognisable. Amelia our youngest daughter would get very frustrated and a session with paper and pencils would often result in lots of screwed up *rejects* and a very unhappy girlie.
Then I discovered the I can draw series of books published by Usborne. They break the technique of drawing down into easy pieces anyone can follow. Even my artistically challenged husband managed some animals you could recognise.
We started with the I can draw people and animals books written by Ray Gibson. They are so easy to follow that anyone can be drawing something recognisable within a few minutes. I’ve enlisted the help of my girlie wirlies to show you just how easy it is to draw a fish. There are four stages to follow.
1. Draw an egg shaped body
2. Add the mouth and an eye
3. Crayon some patterns on the body
4. Crayon a tail and two fins
