Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a pinwheel. So we're going to start with the circle in the middle and then draw these curved lines that are kind of like shell shapes and these can be as big as you like. We're not going to finish it off because they're all going to be layered with each other and so the same over this side, this line comes up and go to the same shape over here and this line comes up and this curves around here. So that's a basic very very basic shape of the pinwheel. We want to give it a little bit more detail so these lines are going to come down to show that they're curved over like the paper you would do to make the actual pinwheel. So just lots of curved lines. I'm going to extend this one a little bit to match the others and then no pinwheel is complete without the stick that's holding it. I'm just going to draw two lines, very close together, color them in and then one little dot in the center and there we go. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw a pinwheel.
