Celebrating Shark Week By Drawing Sharks!

Each year in mid-July sharks are celebrated around the world during the annual Shark Week festival. Below you’ll find two workshop recordings that teach you all about sharks and how to draw both a hammerhead and a great white shark. Enjoy!

ALL ABOUT SHARKS AND HOW TO DRAW THEM

So, if you’d like to learn more about sharks and their biology and anatomy, I invite you to watch the recordings below of two live, online workshops I taught on sharks.

Drawing a Great White Shark

If you’d like to follow along to the step-by-step drawing demonstration, I suggest you gather some sketching pencils and download the Great White Shark image I use in the video to help you follow along (49-minutes).

 

Drawing a Hammerhead Shark

If you’d like to follow along to the step-by-step drawing demonstration, I suggest you gather some sketching pencils and download the Hammerhead Shark image I use in the video to help you follow along (75-minutes).

 

I feel honored to have seen a variety of shark species in my travels, and even swam with hammerheads in the Galapagos Islands which was a thrilling experience! Sadly, sharks are often under-appreciated and sometimes reviled members of marine ecosystems but they play vital roles in their habitats as top predators. I hope these video workshops have taught you a lot about sharks and given you a greater appreciation for their diversity and fascinating anatomy.
