How Directed Drawings Work

Directed drawings are step by step directions to create a picture.  Instead of looking at the picture and trying to draw it yourself, directed drawings guide you through each step making it much easier to create the end result.

Children can get frustrated when they decide they want to draw but it doesn’t turn out the way they expected it.  Using step by step drawings can help to reduce frustration and increase confidence in their abilities.

How to Complete the FREE Directed Drawing and Writing Activity

At the bottom of this post, you can download and print the two pages.  Page one is the easier version.  Children have to follow the six directions to draw the girl swinging on the swing in the box provided.

Page two is more difficult.  Children have to follow the six step by step free directed drawing and then write a few sentences about the picture they created.

If the child is having difficulty with sentence production, offer a few suggestions with words associated with swinging to get the child’s creativity flowing.  Words such as outside, swingset, playground, park, backyard, friends, etc.
