Kids Art: How to Draw a Deer

Summer Art camp was a huge success this year!!  We had 17 students from the ages of 8-13...All of them wonderful and talented individuals!!

With that being said...I'm sure you can understand why there are so many samples...
I couldn't leave anyone of these darling deer's out.  :)

If you scroll down to the bottom of the post you can find the directions for my directed draw.

Don't you just love the horns on this fella?

But do enjoy the pictures on the way down!!  :)

The kids all do eyes so differently...You can tell each one has already developed their own style.

Golly I love this guys face...It just makes me smile!!

So many different wonderful designs!!

Dang...These kids make me look good!!  :)

So here is my directed draw...

I know...It's not very professional but I got it done and you should be able to click on it and print it or save to you computer...It should at least give you an idea of how to do a directed draw..
I always do them on the white board one step at a time so the kids can follow along...
And to be honest..Theirs always look better than mine!  :)

We used a black sharpie to go over the drawing and then painted the back ground with water colors.

Next step was to add a design to the deer.

Well that's it....Now it's your turn; go ahead and volunteer at your local school and put a smile on some kids face!!!


Will, as usual, be linking up to  the parties on my sidebar.


  1. Loving your blog!!! I just started following you, hoping you'll follow back :)

  2. Great graphic art! Love this idea for repeats on a wall.

  3. I'd be happy to frame and hang any one of them!

    1. Me too!! I hope the parents do just that...It so validates the art work!! :)
