A few posts back I said I was going to write out the script for the bull dog Draw-a-long. These are the steps I use when doing it with the younger grades. As you can see they are very precise, which is important for every learner to be able to follow along and be successful. This lesson builds confidence because they are so EXCITED when they finished to see a dog that looks so realistic. The open ended background allows for SO much creativity to happen. This is a great drawing exercise for any grade level k-5th!
Get your pen ready and HAVE FUN!
I would LOOOOVEEEEEE to see your finished bulldogs to add to the bottom of this post!! Send them to
Be sure to color ALL of your background! :-)
1. Begin with a line at the top with a little wrinkle. IT should be longer than your finger
9. draw the bottom of the nose like a letter "V" and a tiny line in the middle.
10. Then draw a tiny line under the nose. Then draw a tiny letter "A"
11. then make two tiny tiny rainbows under the "A"
16. Now draw the outside of his face beginning back up at the original diagonal line we started with, all the way down, following the leader, under his lips, make a slight dip for his chin and back up the other side to the other diagonal line
17. Now make a dash line all the way around his neck
18. draw the spikes beginning in the middle and coming out through the open dashes
