I started the Rumriver Art Center a few years ago to teach art classes to homeschool students. I wanted to share some of my lessons and exercises to help the creativity of the Homeschool students. I will also be giving updates on what is happening at Rumriver Art Center. I would love to hear your ideas and thoughts.

Animal Project: King Cobra
The King Cobra can inject huge amounts of poison in a single bite, enough to kill a large elephant. The king cobra is the world's longest venomoussnake, with a length up to 5.6 m (18.5 ft). This species is found predominantly in forests from India through Southeast Asia to the Philippines and Indonesia. In this project I use Japanese artist Sachiko Umoto King Cobra, here illustration books are available at Amazon.com.
Materials: Heavyweight drawing paper, sketching pencil, sharpie and your choice of materials to finish.
Step #1: Draw the forehead and the mouth with a "U". Draw the eyes, nose, and sharp fangs.
Step #2: Draw the cobra body with a broadly spread hooded shape. Then Draw the first coil.
Step #3: Draw the coiled body and tail (you draw as many coils as you want).
Step #4: Draw you details, the cobra has a pattern on its head, but not its body. Be creative and have some fun.
