What do you like to draw? Have you ever drawn a bird? Well, if you’ve never had the pleasure of doing that, now’s your big chance because today is Draw a Picture of a Bird Day. That means exactly what it sounds like it means, so grab some paper and crayons or a sidewalk and some chalk, and get to work! When you draw anything, you’re actually making lots of decisions without even realizing it: what exactly to draw, what coloring tools to use in what colors, and how big to draw your subject.  Luckily, on Draw a Picture of a Bird Day it doesn’t have to be a bird you saw today, which opens up a lot of possibilities.
