Art Challenge #1 -

Draw a Cactus!

Hannah is a team leader at Youth Haven in Michigan, and her friend is an art teacher. She is going to show you how to draw a picture of a cactus - or two, or three, or more! Here's what you need to do:


Step 1:

Watch the video below teaching you how to draw the cactus using supplies you have at home. Or, if you already know how to draw a cactus and you don't want to watch a video, you can skip this step.

Step 2:

Take a picture of your drawing. We're sorry that we can't post pictures of you, so please make sure it's just a picture of your drawing, not a picture of you holding your drawing.

Step 3:

Fill out the form below to send your picture to us. Check back on this page to see your drawing on the web site!

By Julianna, Age 12

Julianna says, "I would not want to touch this. Trust me I know. I have done it before." Ouch! That must have hurt! We're glad you're okay. You drew a beautiful picture, though! Thank you for sending it to us. We love it!
