Me & My Pencil: How to Draw A Puppy

Me & My Pencil: How to Draw A Puppy

Summer Solidays Activity. Learn to draw a furry puppy. (age 5+)


Join us at The Core this summer holiday for Amazing Art workshops. In this session, learn how to draw a furry puppy.

What will you learn?

Using just a pencil and eraser, this workshop will help you create your very own puppy portrait! Learn how to tackle complex drawings, using shading and pencil techniques to create fluffy and textured fur. We’ll demonstrate simple ways of measuring and recording proportions accurately. In just one session, you’ll have made a beautiful drawing that can be taken home and framed. And you’ll have developed a toolkit of skills, which can be applied to future artwork.
