Activity 2 - Drawing a bird using simple shapes


Many creatures can be drawn by starting with some simple shapes!  Why not have a go at drawing a bird using this technique?  Once you have your bird shape, you could colour it in any way you like, perhaps copy the colours from a bird you have spotted in your garden or outside your window? Or you could really use your imagination to create a unique bird of your own!


Here is an instruction video, showing how you can draw a bird, starting simply, and then adding each different part bit by bit.
