Polar bears have long been a part of art. The earliest known depiction dates to 1,500 years ago. Today, these bears are seen on emblems of northern countries, such as Greenland, and in popular culture. Notable cartoon polar bears include the Coca Cola bears, used in advertising since 1993, Polar of the the children's book Polar, the Titanic Bear (Daisy Spedden, 1991), Muk and Luk from Balto (1995), and Mr. Big's henchmen from Zootopia (2016).

Would you like to draw your very own cute polar bear cub? Doing so is easy with the help of this simple, step-by-step drawing tutorial. All you will need is a pencil, a piece of paper, and perhaps an eraser. In each step, new lines are highlighted in blue, while lines drawn previously fade to black.

Did you know? A polar bear's fur is not actually white. Polar bears have black skin covered with transparent, colorless hairs. The hairs reflect the sun in such a way that the bears appear white. You can color your polar bear however you wish using crayons, colored pencils, markers, or paints.
