Cartoon Dancing Pig
My school’s Spring Dance was happening during Cartoon Class today, so I went with the music and showed the kids how to draw a dancing pig. Thank you Caedmon (1st grader) for letting me share your adorable drawing!
1. Start with drawing the nose, then two eyes, and the oval face. Add the ears and mouth. Draw a roundish body below and add human like arms and legs. The fun part is posing the limbs to imply some kind of action.
2. Trace the drawing with a black Sharpie marker.
3. Color with crayons as desired. Pink, of course, always works.
