It’s been a while since I drew anything that falls in the ‘for kids’ section, so today I will add something new. Up next I will try and teach you "how to draw a bus for kids", step by step. One of the more popular buses that kids love to draw is the school bus. I think this is because scenes are drawn with kids playing in a school yard and what is a school yard drawing without the typical yellow bus in the background somewhere. The idea for the bus design was simple enough, and even though I don’t attend school anymore, I still had lots of fun creating my own version on how a bus should look. I think you will find this lesson helpful and artists of all levels can have fun with drawing a school bus too. I will return in a bit because there is still more exciting lessons coming your way. Peace out people and enjoy!
