Artist: Dawn / April 3, 2012

Step 1.

Begin drawing your lotus for kids by making two peel like shapes that are spread out from each other. These are the second tier of petals.

Step 2.

Draw in a cone shape for the middle petal, then two more lotus petals off to the sides like so.

Step 3.

Next, draw in the base or bottom lotus petals which the flower or lily rests on besides the lily pad.

Step 4.

Lastly, draw the plate like shape under the lily or lotus which is also known as the lily pad. These pads are also often seen by themselves in ponds and other areas that lotus' flourish. Add some detailing lines, then erase the mistakes you may have    

Step 5.

Here is what your drawing looks like when complete. Now all you have to do is color it in to your liking and maybe add it to a background image. Great work guys!

Description: I absolutely love this tutorial on "how to draw a lotus for kids". Again, this is going out to my sister who is now getting into drawing flowers. I asked her yesterday what she wanted to be when she grows up and she replied with "an artist". I knew right there that she was definitely going to be like me, but even better. She draws way better than I did at her age, so I know that the artistic gene runs in the family hardcore. Anyways, the lotus for kids is going to be extremely fun to recreate because it only consists of seven petals, and one lily pad. The petals are smooth lined, and simple to draw. It almost looks like an artichoke. Well, I guess that's about it for now, I will let you guys get busy with drawing a lotus for kids. Thanks guys and like always, enjoy!
