Check out our pawsome creative guide to help you draw your own cat!
In the latest in our series of fun tutorials for keeping the kids entertained (and the big kids!), our Project Manager and artistic ace Amie Pryal has put together a purr-fect guide on how to draw your very own cat in six simple steps. Read on for more information and click here to download our guide in an easy-to-print format.
And if you’re still looking for fun things to do in lockdown, why not check out our previous guides to help you draw your very own unicorn, narwhal, dragon, robot and alien? Happy drawing!
Draw an oval shape for the head and add two larger triangle shapes on top. Add smaller triangles inside the larger ones to make the ears.
For the face, draw two small ovals for the eyes and add a triangle in the middle of each. For the nose, draw a small heart in the middle of the head. To make the mouth, draw a straight line from the middle of the nose and add a ‘w’ shape at the bottom.
Draw two large circles beneath the head. Add an oval shape in the middle of each circle. Then, draw smaller circles above the oval to make the toes.
Now we add the front legs and paws. Draw three lines in the middle of your earlier circles and join them together at the bottom with two ovals. Add lines inside the circles to make the toes.
Now draw curved lines to connect the two circles to the head and the legs. Add a creative tail by drawing a swirly ‘s’ shape on one side of the body.
And now you have your kitty! Feel free to add extra details if you like, such as whiskers, stripes and a collar. (To draw the stripes, add triangles all around the edges of the cats face and body.) Then colour it in.
