How to Draw a Face For Kids

Artist: Dawn / January 26, 2011

Step 1.

These are just the various types of simplistic eyes you can use on your drawings of an easy face. Explore and observe how the eyes are drawn to make things simple and easy.

Step 2.

Start with tow round shapes for the heads of your faces. Then draw out the facial guidelines like so.

Step 3.

In this step, you will begin drawing out the shapes of the lower portion of the face. This is actually the face structure which will determine what types of figures you are drawing, a boy or girl. When the structure is drawn in, start the lining for    

Step 4.

Now you can draw in the eyeballs, then draw out the eyebrows. The male face has thicker brows, while the female has more thinner or feminine brows. Next, add the lining for their noses, and draw out the mouths.

Step 5.

Here you will draw out their hair style and as you can see I forgot to include a step where you draw the ears and front bangs first. I will get that step uploaded later. The simple hairstyles is a good way to keep the faces easy for kids to draw.

Step 6.

Lastly, detail inside of the eyes, and then inside of the ears. Erase the lines and shapes you drew in step one.

Step 7.

Here is what the finished product looks like when you are all done. Now you can go ahead and color the faces in. I hope you liked learning how to draw a face for kids.

Description: I am so surprised how everyone is asking me to do more and more โ€œfor kidsโ€ tutorials. To keep the momentum going I thought it would be nice to upload a lesson on "how to draw a face for kids", step by step. Drawing faces is one of the hardest parts of the human body to draw. This is mainly because the face has so many different angles, shapes, and definitions. For instance, when drawing a human face, you not only have to get the head shape right, but you also have to draw in the eyes, eyebrows, and eyeballs evenly if you want a symmetrical looking person. The next thing you have to do is draw out the nose. This can be hard because under the nose is the mouth. Some people draw the mouth and nose too close together, or too far apart. To get the nose and mouth perfectly drawn, you have to use your logical judgment. Now since kids love drawing people, learning "how to draw a face for kids" is going to be the perfect lesson that will give you an easy approach to making a face in a very simple way. I hope you enjoy this submission, be sure to come back soon to see what else I have in store for you all.
