How To Draw A Raccoon, Free Printable Worksheet

Free how to draw a raccoon art lesson

This free how to draw a raccoon is a project that should make drawing a raccoon easy for anybody.

FIRST, A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT,
Do not get discouraged if your first attempt does not turn out the way you wanted; artist often draw a thing a few times before they get it right they call the first pictures a "Rough Draft." Learning to draw takes time and practice so draw every day. Come back and try other projects and soon you will be drawing beautiful pictures.

HOW TO PRINT THE FREE COLORING PAGE BELOW
  • With some printers, you can just highlight it and send it to your printer.
  • Some printers work better if you copy and paste the image into a Word Document then print as you would normally. (If you get a small image just adjust the margins from the page layout in the toolbar, then drag the image to enlarge it.)
  • Some printers work better if you first drag the image to your desktop and print from there.
If you have problems printing see the "HOW TO PRINT" tab above or try one of the updated links below that should print better.

If you print on heavy cardstock paper you may find that you can use watercolor paint or pens and inks.
