How to Draw a Ninja Step-By-Step Instructions
This directed drawing how-to-draw video walks kids through a number of steps, helping them practice focus and concentration while they learn to draw a ninja girl.
Ninjas were mercenaries in feudal Japan who were highly trained in martial arts and stealth (ninjutsu). Although there are no longer ninjas wandering around practicing their martial arts on people (that we know of), they’re always a hit with kids. You’re bound to see at least a few little ones dressed up as ninjas every Halloween.
Ninja Girl requires the greatest attention span of our how-to-draw videos, so you might want to kick off with How to a Draw Boy and work up to these more complex drawings.
Teach Starter Teacher Tip: When your class has become pros at some or all of the How to Draw video series, they are ideal to use as a warm-up activity for any lesson. The drawing exercises are ideal to use before writing lessons and, of course, visual art lessons. Your students will be instantly engaged and ready for learning.
