Drawing An Owl

This week (and next) I am teaching at Philbrook Museum Art Camp.  One of my co-workers, Aubree, lead the children in this wonderful drawing of an owl.  Isn’t it cute?!

Draw a large oval.  Add two curved lines.
Draw an upside down triangle.
Draw two large circles for the eyes.  Add a medium size circle inside the large circle.
Add a black dot.  Add details like zig zag lines on the wings, little feet, maybe even a hairdo?!
Color your owl.

    Does anyone have the cute words that went along step by step with this drawing? About 1945 an older neighbor entertained me by drawing and reciting it.
