Cats & Kittens
Learn to draw using basic shapes--step by step! (I Can Draw #3)
A sleeping cat, a playing kitten, and a scaredy cat are just some of the cats included in this book. With 15 fun drawing projects, I Can Draw: Cats & Kittens is a collection of some of kids’ most loved cats. All of the drawings are created with simple shapes that are easy for young artists to make, and the cute, simple illustrations are appealing and approachable to young ones.
The book begins with an introduction to drawing materials and instructions on how to use the book, and then it jumps right into the drawing projects. For a cute kitten:
- Kids start with a square, add a line, a curved line, and some more straight and curved lines. They are encouraged to keep following along with each step.
- As they make their way through the multiple steps, all the new pencil marks to make are shown in red so it’s easy to know what to draw next.
- Once they near the end of the project, these young artists will start to see a drawing of a baby kitten appear on their paper, and all they need to do now is add some color.
Each title in the I Can Draw series features easy step-by-step drawing lessons for little artists. Starting with basic shapes, such as a square, a rectangle, a triangle, and a circle, children will discover how to draw a range of subjects, including animals, butterflies, flowers, pets, and more! The books in the I Can Draw series provides the perfect introduction to drawing for budding artists.
