Kids Anatomy


In this lesson we will study about the human anatomy by drawing our  body and labeling some key body parts. 

All art, whether it is a children's book, fashion, architecture, industrial design, fine art or an instructional manual, involves people in some way. Most of us will encounter a situation when we will have to draw people to illustrate a point so it is very helpful to have some knowledge of the human anatomy.
