It's Fun to Draw Creepy-Crawlies
For little fans of bugs of all kinds, learn how to draw the cutest of creepy-crawlies with this easy-to-follow step-by-step guide. Each spread features bug facts so that kids can learn a little about each creepy-crawly creature as they learn how to draw them all. Start with a simple caterpillar or a smiling snail and work your way up to a fierce scorpion! First draw the creepy-crawlies with crayons and markers and then experiment with paints and tissue paper. With the help of this book, kids will be able to draw their very own:
- And eight more!
New lines are always drawn in red so that kids can see how the drawing builds from step to step. These bugs have personality and can be impossibly cute or as scary as can beit's up to you! Vibrantly colored final art illustrations go that extra step to inspire budding artists to get creative with their very own bug world.
All aspiring artists need to start with the basics and to have fun while learning. It's Fun to Draw is a fantastic series that any youngster can use to start honing their skills. Each project has easy-to-follow instructions that will clearly guide the child through the step-by-step process of creating vivid whimsical characters or animals. In a matter of minutes a novice will learn to create a wide variety of animals, insects, knights, pirates, princesses and even wee beasties from the deep! Most of the projects are done with pencil or crayon drawings, but a few are cardboard cutouts that require scissors. Divided by subject matter, each book is published on high finish paper, reasonably priced and cleverly simplistic. The author clearly had a blast designing each project, sprinkling every other page with a little trivia and naming certain characters, like Barnacle Butch and Sophie Storm (the pirates book is my favorite, by the way). ~ Nick
