How to Draw a Tree
This tutorial is designed to show students the structure of a tree and how the branches are random. However, most students, if given the opportunity to draw a tree the way they are used to, will simply draw the trunk and cap it with a cloud shape.
Getting Started with Drawing Guides
Showing students how to use guides as a reference is the best way to get them started with any drawing lesson. Simply fold the sheet of paper in half both ways, make a crease, and unfold; the creases will disappear by the time the drawing is finished and colored in.
