How To Draw A Wolf

  • The best homeschool hint is to start by thinking what makes a wolf a wolf!
  • Art is often about giving clues, so shaggy manes and tails will definitely begin to ring some bells.
  • Kids might find drawing approximate geometrical shapes helps you get the basic body design sorted. Catherine can show you how this is done on her homeschool art dragons pages.
  • Have a look at Catherine's wolf animal totem in her Wild Art Treasures Etsy on-line shop to see how having a long narrow nose and tall pointed ears begins to mark out your animal as a wolf rather than a soppy dog!

  • When you're thinking noses, think dogs! It often helps to leave a white line showing the nostril, and dog's nostrils are shaped a bit like a keyhole.
  • Eyes always make animals come alive when you're learning how to draw them! Wolf eyes are very special. They have black around the iris as well as a black pupil.
  • The main thing to remember with all homeschool art projects for kids is that they're all about enjoying yourself and having fun! Even if your wolf comes out looking more like a donkey it doesn't matter.

You can draw your wolf hunt anyhow you like.


  • Catherine also makes wolf totems out of polymer clay and sells them on her Wild Art Treasures Etsy shop.  If you have a look they are simple to make and something your child might like to try.

  • Each wolf totem comes with its own scroll outlining its powers.

Powers of the Wolf:
(1.) Free spirit.
(2.) Intelligence.
(3.) Endurance.
(4.) Loyalty.
(5) Friendliness.
Wolf totem is strongest by the light of the Moon.

This Animal totem will always be there to protect and guide you.

  • Your child might also like to invent their own powers of the wolf as a fun writing activity
