K-5 How To Draw People

An Eraser
There are many ways to draw people. Like handwriting, each person’s way of drawing is unique!
1
From 2D stick person to 3D- try adding 1 line to each stick. Then lengthen the arms and leg.

To make a 3D person without starting with a stick person, think about adding SHAPES together.

Draw lightly so you can erase. Change the shape of your people’s arms and legs to show movement.
4
Bend arm and leg lines to make people move! Sometimes they’ll need to bend across the body.
