Supplies you’ll need for drawing a teddy bear and red heart

  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Eraser

 Artist tip: As with any drawing it’s important to recognize how much space you are working with.

To do this, point to the middle of your paper with your finger or pencil.

This will tell your eyes how much space you have to draw in. It does not have to be exact!

2. From this dot draw a heart. 

Pencil on the dot, up, over and down towards the middle. Repeat for the other side.

Hearts can be tricky, make sure to draw lightly so it is easily erasable if there is something you want to adjust.

Don’t forget the small line in the V shape of the heart. This drawing is all about giving a teddy bear with a heart after all.

7. Add some eyes and eyebrows: small ovals above the snout.

Then, curved lines somewhere above the eyes. That’s your choice, Artist.

8. Inside the snout, draw a wide oval for the nose.
