How to Draw a Great Looking Teacher for Kids and Beginners - Step 1

How to Draw a Teacher Step 01

1. Sketch the teacher's face and hair. Outline the face using a "U" shaped line. Use two curved lines to form a lock of hair in the center of the forehead. From each side of the lock, extend another curved line. Allow this line to meet the top of the "U" and curve past it. Then, extend a short curved line from this line to the face to form each ear. Use a large, upside down "U" shaped line to sketch the top of the hair, with shorter lines curving back toward the face.
