Drawing a dog – instruction for children
Time needed 10 minutes
With this instruction, you will learn how to draw a doggie and you will be able to show off your skills at school and kindergarten.
- Start with the circle
First, draw a circle that will act as the dog’s face
- Draw the dog’s head and nose
Then we draw the second part of the dog’s head and nose. Above the oval, draw an arc, that is, the head of the dog. At the top of the oval, draw a round toe. Paint it black.
- It’s turn to the dog’s ears
Now it’s the dog’s ears. Dogs have different ears, but this one will have flappy ears. To do this, draw oblong dog ears on both sides of the head as shown in the picture.
- Finish drawing the head
In this step, we will be drawing both the eyes, face and front paws, so we have a lot of work to do. The meshes are two oblong dots. Above them, draw small arcs or eyebrows.
Draw a line under the nose that bends into an anchor at the bottom. This will be the doggy’s face.
Leave some space under the head and draw two open rollers slightly rounded at the end, because these will be the front legs.
- Our drawing looks like a dog
Now it’s time to draw the dog’s tummy. Draw a circle from which the dog’s feet will stick out a little. If you are drawing with a pencil, you can make a full circle and then erase the parts where the circle touches the head and feet.
- Almost ready, draw the toes and tail
It’s the turn of the hind feet and the tail, so draw two rollers on both sides of the belly – these will be the feet. Draw a slightly bent roller over one of the hind legs – the dog’s tail.
- drawing of a dog is ready
This is what the finished dog looks like. It was that simple, wasn’t it? Thanks to this exercise, you already know how to draw a dog. If you want you can also color it.
- Now paint it
I colored the dog like this, but you can choose other colors. Happy coloring!
