How to Draw a Pig

Using the same technique as the Kinder Cows, this lesson teaches your little ones simple drawing techniques and offers enough options for each child to create their own little piggy!

Supplies:
  • 12" x 18" white drawing paper
  • Black, pink, white, green and yellow oil pastel or crayons
  • Red (watered-down), green and blue liquid watercolors
  • Brushes and Water

Step One: Begin with a 12" x 18" white drawing paper and a black oil pastel and draw a small circle towards the LHS of the paper. Then, draw a large curve, starting at the right of the circle (head) and going all the way around until you reach the bottom of the circle (chin).


Step Two: Draw two straight lines for legs complete with inverted letter "V" for hoofs. Draw a small circle with two short vertical lines inside for a snout, two dots for eyes and two ears. Lastly, draw a curly tail.
Step Three: Using a white oil pastel, color in white clouds and a fence line. Using a green oil pastel, add grass. Yellow oil pastel for a sun, etc. Continue until the child has enough detail in his picture. You can suggest butterflies, flowers, etc.

Step Four: Set out a tray of blue, green and pink (watered down red) liquid watercolor paints and large wash brushes. This step takes very little time.
Set out to dry and Viola! Pretty Pigs!
