How To Draw Cupid

In honor of the day, I'd like to offer instructions for drawing Cupid, thanks to The Mini Page, a newspaper supplement written for kids by Betty Debnam.

I think I'll give it a try. I see there are four steps...

Step 1...

Step 2...

Step 3...

And finishing up with Step 4... Viola!!!

Cupid (drawn by an abstractionist)


  1. You are awesome and make me laugh. This just makes me want to give you a big hug!


  2. Tee hee! And you changed it by having a horizontal line instead of one at a slight angle.

    Something like this would be a good lesson for students to get what abstract means. (It seems you have such advanced students that they don't need the hint, but beginning students might.)

  3. What a good idea, Cathy! And I've noticed some people have an instinct for abstract images and others simply don't.... quite separate from liking or not liking abstract work.
