Basketball is one of the most loved and popular sports among children. Apart from the proper reflexes, the bouncy ball with its decorative lines can teach a lesson or two to the youngsters in drawing too. Getting the circle right is instrumental in the success of this art activity. Intersecting guidelines help in sketching the curves that line the body of a typical basketball.
Step 1: Draw a circle with the horizontal and vertical guides.
Step 2: A curved line crosses the circle a little above the center.
Step 3: Another curve is drawn in the right half.
Step 4: Now it is the turn of the lower half to showcase a wave-like curve.
Step 5: Erase the guides.
Step 6: Color the basketball in a shade of your choice.
Kids should find it easy to draw as it involves a few steps and focuses on simple curves. Next time they are at the game, expect them to watch the ball closely to get the sketch perfect the next time around, that is, in case they found it hard the first time.
