Drawing with Shapes!

Hi everyone!

Today’s story time read aloud is about a little frog that would rather be any other animal than who he is. It takes a crafty wolf to remind him why we should be happy to be who we are.
I love this book because the illustrator gave the characters so much personality. It’s also a very important message for everyone.

You can see the video read aloud @Art Out of Anything on FB.

Looking at the illustrations in this book reminds me of how easy it is to learn how to draw animals, or just about anything, by breaking the object down into simple shapes.

In the slideshow above you can see how I used circles, squares, rectangles and triangles to draw some of the animals found in the story.

If you look at the world around you, you will notice that geometry is everywhere!

Here’s a link to a more detailed explanation and drawing practice  – Art Tutor Blog

Try this free downloadable template that uses triangles and circles, to get started on your own animal drawing – Shapes drawing template

Connect the groups of dots and see what animal you get. Can you guess what animal it is?I did leave out one shape, see if you can tell which shape fits to complete the drawing.

There’s a new art project video every Tuesday and Thursday @artoutofanything on FB and Instagram and a new Story Time every Saturday.

Thanks so much for visiting today and keep creating!

Patty
