Rhinoceros Education and Sketching Workshops
In honor of World Rhinoceros Day, which is observed annually on September 22nd, I’d like to share some replays of live workshops I’ve taught on rhino biology and how to create realistic sketches of them. You’ll learn some interesting facts about both Indian and African rhino species, where they live, their behavior, their anatomy, and the threats they face.
Then I’ll lead you through step-by-step demonstrations of drawing both an Indian/Greater One-horned Rhinoceros and an African White/Square-lipped Rhinoceros. So gather some pencils and paper to follow along. Enjoy!

Free Rhinoceros Coloring Page
As an artist and environmental educator, I enjoy creating resources to help educate youth about wildlife conservation issues.
Feel free to DOWNLOAD and print as many copies of the rhinoceros coloring page as you’d like to share with the children and students in your life.

If you enjoyed this presentation on elephants you may like my online course, Sketching Mammals of the World, where I teach you about other types of African mammals including giraffes, rhinoceros, wild dogs, aardvarks, pangolins, meerkats, warthogs, and zebras. My course also includes workshops on other mammals worldwide from bats to whales.
