Super Saturdays: Sausages and Potatoes drawing tips

Super Saturdays: Use materials around the home to get creative.

In this week’s Super Saturday adventure we’re helping you to perfect your drawing of figures….using sausages and potatoes.

All you’ll need to do this activity is paper, a pencil, rubber and pens. Watch how our amazing freelance artist Dom Harbot creates a figure giving his top sausage and potato tips. Click here or on the picture below to watch the film.




Sketching for five-minutes is a lot of fun because it offers just enough time to capture a strong sense of the pose, but not enough time to overwork (or overthink) the drawing. Keeping things simple is a recurring theme throughout the these tutorials.

The main thing to remember for a successful quick pose is to keep the gist of the subject, so we’ll build it up bit by bit. Let’s get started!


If you’ve got the gist of drawing a figure, watch how you can draw hands, feet and clothing. Click here or on the picture below to watch the film.


For more Super Saturday fun join us every weekend as we provide fun creative activities for all the family. Take a look at our other Super Saturday suggestions including Keep the Boredom At Bay and Be Kind activities as well as Colour our Collection sheets inspired by artwork in our collection.


Make sure you share your drawings with us @galleryoldham we’d love to see your figures. Perhaps you could send us a picture of your family?
