Even if your little one has never drawn before, they can create pictures better than they ever imagined. Every artist starts with the basics and here is a step-by-step guide to them all. With this how to draw for kids book, every kid can be creative and capture whatever catches their eye.

In How to Draw, kids ages 9-12 will try their hand at everything from magical creatures and cartoons to realistic landscapes, portraits, and so much more. Covering basic techniques as they go, this book will prepare and inspire young artists to create their very own masterpieces. It’s easier than you think.

How to draw for kids includes:

  • Age-appropriate basics―Kids will learn how to shade dark and light, use perspective, create 3D shapes effects, and more.
  • Easy-to-follow steps―Get start-to-finish instruction for every exercise.
  • Cool pictures―Unicorns, faces of friends and neighbors, buildings, plants and trees―the possibilities are as endless as your child’s creativity.

Every kid has the potential to be creative―this how to draw for kids workbook nurtures their confidence step-by-step.




Very nice book on learning to draw. Broken down in two parts: Part 1 – basics to start practicing (drawing terms, techniques, and warm ups) and Part 2  – the drawing projects. This book is for everyone from 9 and up. I even managed to draw some pretty good sketches and I’m not known for my artist skills. The drawings are shown in easy to follow steps but you also look at the examples to get the full detail ideas. What I really liked is the variety of drawing projects.
