Draw & Paint a Bunny!
Every year around this time we draw and paint BUNNIES!
We have painted wild rabbits in fields of flowers and Easter Bunnies decorating eggs.
You can draw and paint a bunny too! All that's needed are a few simple art supplies that you probably have at home.
We are posting several bunny projects to choose from. Just pick the one you like and we'll show you what to do.
Here is a fun little bunny for 5 to 7-year-olds (or so) to draw and paint themselves. They will need a piece of 9" x 12" sketching or drawing paper (ordinary white copy paper will work too), oil pastels (or crayons), and a set of watercolors. You can find step-by-step directions to make this little bunny right here.
Thank you Artventurous for this super-cute bunny art idea!
The fuzzy bunny project below was designed for kids 8 and up, but I think younger kiddos could try it too.
The bunny is first sketched lightly in pencil on sturdy white paper. Drawing paper would work best. Start by drawing the head shape first, leaving plenty of room for the long ears. Add the V-shaped nose, the ears, and the neck. Draw in the eyes on the sides of the head near the ears. Next, go over your sketch with water-based markers like Crayola brand markers, adding furry texture as you go. Don't color in the eyes yet! Now you will carefully paint the bunny along the marker lines with clear water. The marker turns into watercolor! Use a soft brush as you pull the delicate colors into the bunny's body shape. When it is dry, you can then use a Sharpie to color in the eyes and add details like curly little eye lashes and whiskers.
