Quick and Easy: Draw Some 3D Shapes

This is truly a quick and easy little tutorial, created by my 15 year old, Fen. I love watching her draw and doodle all over everything in our entire house. Ahem.

No, but really! It’s inspiring to see the cool little things she draws, and I find myself copying her drawings much like I used to copy the drawings of teenagers when I was 10. Weird.

Drawing 3d shapes is a fun little thing to show your kids, and they can practice it on veritably any shape they feel like drawing, as you will see.

After you’ve mastered these, check out a whole bunch more sketchbook ideas here.
