When I was younger, I always wanted to learn how to draw Mickey Mouse. I had an opportunity to do it when I was in Disney’s Hollywood Studios many years ago and I’m not sure where the drawing is, but I do remember it was not my best work. Then I saw on the Disney Parks Blog the step by step directions on how to draw 1920’s Mickey Mouse. I thought this would be a fun activity for my daughter and I to do together, but first let me say that she is 6 years old and has a lot more artistic ability than I do. So this past weekend we sat down at the kitchen table and attempted to draw Mickey. It was a fun and a little trying at times (I had a lot of eraser marks and we both got a little frustrated), but overall for her first attempt at drawing Mickey I think she did extremely well.
