Learn how to draw a witch with this easy step by step tutorial video. Keep things creative by focusing on just her shoes and stockings.
Witch Tutorial Video
If your students have an interest in learning how to draw a witch for Halloween, here’s a solution that makes the most of all your options out there. This witch tutorial takes the focus off of what her face may or may not look like, and has fun with just her stockings and shoes. Those curly-toed boots make an adorable silhouette, and are good symmetry drawing practice too.
Please note that if you would like to try this with younger classes, say first and second grade, I highly recommend that you make a boot template that students can trace and flop and trace again. While you may have a few students that can “see” how to draw the boots on their own, I found that on average, only older students tend to be able to work this out on their own. Not to worry though, they lesson of symmetry is still there, as they will learn by flipping their template to make a right and left boot.
Drawing with Guides
You may have noticed that all of the tutorials on this website have a dashed vertical line and horizontal line running through the center of each step. If students make their own centered lines on their own paper, before drawing, they will have an easy reference to follow. All they need to do is fold their sheet of paper in half both ways, make a crease, and unfold. The best part is, by the time the drawing is done and colored in, the creases will have disappeared!
Painting Witch Legs
This project has been a favorite of mine for years, and works in all kinds of media. May favorite though, as shown to the right, is with crayon and watercolors.
I used real watercolor paper and liquid watercolor paint to get the bright colors shown here. The supplies cost a little more, but are well worth the investment, if you ask me.
