Description: This is a lesson that I normally wouldn't do because of religious differences that folks may have, but I thought that this concept would make an interesting and educational piece that both kids and adults can learn from in more ways than one. First off, let me tell you that we will be learning "how to draw the Pope", step by step. In this case it's Pope Francis. Some folks will often ask "what is the Pope and what is his purpose?".I will try and answer that question the best way I can from the knowledge that I have. First off, the Pope is leader of the Worldwide Catholic Church and Bishop of Rome. The Pope is often called the "Holy See" and Apostolic See. The Bishop of Rome came about as being the successor to Saint Peter who was also known as one of Jesus Christ's twelve Apostles. Pope Francis' Papacy began March 13, 2013 and is still the Bishop of Rome today. Anyways, enjoy this tut on drawing the Pope, I will be back with one last lesson so stay tuned in.
