Snowman Drawing

One simple change to a snowman’s face can add a ton of charm to a picture. I tried this out in a drawing class today and really liked the results. Young students could just make a simple snowman, while older ones could concentrate on a skyward-looking face.
1. Students followed my drawing lead by first drawing the bottom circle of the snowman, then the middle, and then a rectangle on top (the scarf). A head was added on top, along with a face that was very near the top of the circle. The hat was drawn, as well as the arms and rest of the scarf.
2. All lines were traced with a black Sharpie maker.
3. The snowman was colored in with crayon, and snowflakes were added all around.

I love this so much I used it for a combo crayon / water color project. We used up some iffy gray paper and they turned out so cute. We drew the snowman in a white crayon and added snowflakes all around. Then, we sponged water color over the entire picture. What fun! Thanks for your always incredible ideas! Alyson in Utah
