This is an easy Santa Claus drawing tutorial! Here you can learn step by step how to sketch Santa easily, even for beginners and kids!
Hello everyone and welcome to Santa Claus drawing tutorial! Santa is a popular X-mas character all over the world, and for many children, Santa is the most anticipated guest on Christmas Eve. Surprisingly, Santa Claus is a real character who lived at the end of the 3rd and the beginning of the 4th century in Asia Minor, and he was known under the name of St. Nicholas. He, like modern Santa Claus, gave various gifts to children. Later, St. Nicholas became famous in Europe because of the Dutch sailors who visited Asia Minor. In the United States, St. Nicholas became famous in the 19th century when Clement Clarke Moore wrote poems about St. Nicholas for his children. In these works, Saint Nicholas already flew on a sleigh pulled by reindeer. These were all just approaches to the main fame of Santa Claus, which this character received during the Coca-Cola advertising campaign in the early 30s of the XX century, in which the company’s corporate red colors and the red Santa Claus robe were used. Since that time and until now, the image of a good old man Santa Claus flaunts around the world every Christmas and gives people a great mood for this holiday. We hope that this year you were good guys and Santa Claus will bring you the presents you want! We also wish you a great mood and an enjoyable artwork!
