Continual Line Owl Drawing

Although usually used for warm-up activities, continual single line drawings can sometimes stand alone as a finished piece of art. This is not meant to look like a polished piece of work but it's fun and can fill up a lot of your time especially if you choose to colour it in. The video tutorial will show how one single unbroken line is used to develop a simple image.


Continual line drawings aren’t meant to look perfect. But it’s these imperfections that add interest and personality to your drawings. This is a worthy exercise to develop hand-eye coordination and observational skills. It’s really important to just go with the flow with this activity and accept the finished product, however it ends up looking. 

There is no such thing as making a mistake on this one. Go ahead and dive in straight with a Sharpie or permanent marker. Have fun using coloured markers to colour in your crazy owl!
