Anyone can draw a stick figure. Often, they are the first human characters a person learns to draw. But you can add some pizzazz to your stick figure art when you learn how to draw stick figures dancing!

What is a stick figure? A stick figure or a stickman is a simplified drawing of a person. It's not meant to look realistic.

Instead, it uses basic lines and shapes, like a circle for the head. The body and limbs are usually bare lines.

Did you know? Ancient art is often in the form of stick figures. For example, a stick figure known as a petroglyph can be seen at the Leo Petroglyph in the United States. It is thought to be about a thousand years old.

Stick figures are also used in signage because they are easy to understand, even if you don't speak or read the language.

For example, you can readily recognize the stick figures on men's or women's bathrooms, or the stick figure of a person in a wheelchair. That one is used to mean that a place is handicap accessible. Where would you place a sign with dancing stickmen?
