Learn How to Draw an Eight-Pointed Star in 6 Easy Steps
This lesson will teach the young artist not only how to draw an eight-pointed star, but also help to teach how to create straight lines and arrange them symmetrically on a piece of paper.
You use a ruler or other tools. But if you want to learn how to create straight lines, then I advise you to draw a star without the help of additional tools.
I also want to remind you that you can always check the proportionality and symmetry of your star drawing by looking at it in the mirror. You can also turn it upside down to see mistakes in the drawing.
So, it’s time to start the lesson!
