Phoebe and Her Unicorn is a beautifully-illustrated series about friendship. (Even if that friendship is between a slightly awkward girl and a mildly vain unicorn.) Middle-grade readers will find something to love in each and every book, and will become huge fans of Phoebe and Marigold in no time. In fact, they’ll likely become big enough fans that they’ll jump at the chance to recreate their favorite characters. Luckily, this free character drawing guide walks them through it! With simple instructions from the creator, Dana Simpson, herself, Phoebe fans can bring her to life themselves.
All you need are some pencils and paper, and you can let your students go crazy with artistic flair. Phoebe and Marigold would appreciate a unique approach to art, trust us. Once they’ve mastered Phoebe, encourage them to draw other characters from the book. We have a few guides to help with those endeavors. Take a look at Create Your Own Cartoon, How to Draw Phoebe and Friends, and even Dana Simpson’s Cartooning Guide. No matter which creative project you choose to do with your students, they’re guaranteed to have a great time! Starting with this free character drawing guide is the perfect way to get students excited about reading and art.
