Mother, mom, ma, mommy, mum, mama, mumsy, madre - whatever you call her, mothers are special people. Biologically, a mother is the female parent of a child. Aunts, grandmothers, and adoptive parents may also fill this nurturing role.

Motherhood has long been depicted in art and literature. Many ancient peoples worshipped "mother goddesses" who were often fertility deities or a personification of some aspect of nature.

We see this concept surviving today in phrases such as "Mother Earth" and "Mother Nature."

Later, motherhood was a major concept in Christian iconography and medieval European sculpture and painting. Many artists depicted the biblical figure Mary with the infant Jesus. Others strove to capture the tenderness of the mother-child bond.

Mothers play a very special role in society. Infants are dependent on maternal care for survival, a role which continues in varying degrees until or even into adulthood.

Mothers also teach their children and introduce them to the culture and social structure. Show your mother how much you appreciate her by drawing her a picture today!

1. Begin by drawing an oval to outline the woman's face. Then, draw a vertical line down the middle of the oval, and a straight horizontal line just below the center. The lines should meet at a perpendicular angle. These guide lines will help you place the features of the face.

2. Begin drawing the eyes just above the horizontal guide line. For each, use a curved line for the base and an inverted "U" shaped line to enclose the top and sides. Enclose a partial oval within each eye to form the pupil. Use curved lines to draw the eyebrow above the eye and eyelashes on its outer edge.

4. Erase the vertical guide line. Then, draw the mom's hair. Use overlapping curved lines to draw the hairline and the bangs falling across the face. Use long curved lines to trace the outer edges of the hair. Attach these to the cheeks using a series of short curved lines that meet at jagged points. Draw a curved, triangle-shaped hair barrette in the hair.
