Even if real pets aren’t allowed in the house, young artists will love learning how to draw their favorite (or most desired) pet with this simple book! Step-by-step instructions and illustrations are easy and fun to follow, and children will enjoy fun facts about different pets, such as that a bird’s feathers are heavier than its skeleton! Kids will learn how to draw and color their favorite cuddly pets, such as: a dog, a cat, a guinea pig, a rat, a snake, and eleven more!
In It’s Fun to Draw Pets, artist Mark Bergin gives kids tips and ideas for using watercolors, crayons, pens, and collage to enhance their drawings. And once kids have mastered Bergin’s instructions and drawings, they will be inspired to come up with their own creative pet drawings using the techniques they’ve learned.
Mark Bergin was born in Hastings, England, in 1961. He studied at Eastbourne College of Art and has been illustrating children’s books since 1983. In 1991, he received a Times Educational Supplement award for book illustration. He lives in Bexhill-on-Sea, England.
