Do you draw well? What are the fun things that you recall drawing when you were a child? Have you ever attempted to draw a picture of a bird? If so, did it ever occur to you to celebrate your art skills whether you are good at drawing or not? Why not do that on Draw A Picture Of A Bird Day?
April 8th urges you to honor your art skills on Draw A Picture Of A Bird Day. Attempt to draw a bird no matter how good you are at drawing. There are so many birds to choose from to draw. Are you going to draw a pigeon? How about a parrot, an owl, or a finch? There is also a Canada goose, a penguin; there are birds-of-paradise, flamingo, swallows, sparrows, and so many more.
What you can always do is sit outside and watch the birds fly around and attempt to do some sketching. If you want to draw a picture of a bird that is not endemic to your area, you can type in that bird into Google Images and sketch away. However, the day is meant to help you honor your art skills and enjoy simple life things. It is easy to get wrapped up in worrying about the more substantial items, as being hung up on status can bring anyone down. The day is the day to sit back, think about the simple things that can make you happy, and draw a picture of a bird is one of those things.
History Of Draw A Picture Of A Bird Day
IN 1943, seven-year-old Dorie Cooper who resided in England, visited her uncle, who was wounded and had to have his right leg amputated as he fought in WWII. She wanted to cheer him up and asked him to draw a picture of a bird. He did it even though he was unwell. He looked out the window and saw a robin was out there and drew a picture of the bird. She said it was not a good picture, but his spirits were lifted as he laughed. And other soldiers in the hospital began drawing pictures of birds, and eventually, there were contests held for who drew the best bird picture.
Then three years later, Dorie was killed in a car crash, and at her funeral, Pictures of birds were placed in her coffin, and soldiers from thereon drew pictures of birds on April 8th of every year, which was Dorie’s birthday.
