Learn how to draw a dragonfly for kids step by step with this elementary drawing tutorial for beginners, schoolers, and kindergarteners.
Hello everyone! This easy seven-step guide will learn how to draw a dragonfly for kids in cartoon style. Dragonflies are insects that have inhabited our planet since ancient times and have long been known to people. This is an arthropod six-legged insect, rather large and fast. In total, there are more than 6,000 species of dragonflies in the world, which may differ from each other in some details. These insects have a very memorable appearance and are recognized as soon as we see them. The main features of a dragonfly are its slender and long body, a large movable head that rotates 180 degrees. Dragonflies are common almost all over the world because they require warm weather, sufficient food, and water. By the way, dragonflies are predatory insects, so dragonflies like to be in forests where many other smaller insects live. We hope these were useful facts about this inhabitant of our home planet. Now get down to the drawing process!
