A Fun St. Patrick’s Day Art Project
What is St. Patrick’s Day without a few leprechauns hanging around – right? The “How to Draw a Leprechaun” tutorial is fun for all ages!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Eraser – I like kneaded erasers – no pink smudges!
- Color – use colored pencils, markers, watercolor paints, whatever you like to add color to your leprechaun!
- Pen or Thin Marker – my choice is a Uniball Signo Black Gel Pen. It goes on so smooth!
Download the Step by Step Tutorial!
The printable tutorial is available in my Etsy shop at www.etsy.com/shop/EileenMcKennaArt.
The pdf tutorial is 3 pages and is easy to follow.
