How to Draw a Snail with the Sketchin’ Tech

Sketchin’ Tech is a fun, family-friendly drawing show on YouTube where you can draw all kinds of bugs. Some bugs are beneficial, some bugs are pests, but all are fascinating and fun to draw!     

In this episode, we will learn how to draw a snail. Did you know that whenever a snail feels threatened, they retreat inside their shells for protection, just like a turtle? Their shells also protect them from heat and cold.  

Let’s get our art supplies ready, and watch this video to start drawing.

Now that you’ve learned how to draw a snail with Rob, our Sketchin’ Tech – sharpen your skills with Catch the Art Bug! How to Draw Expressions is our first drawing skills video that will help you take your drawings to the next level! We’re going to use our Snail drawing from last week and show you how to draw cute faces on him. Click here to watch the video!

Parents, here are some fun facts about snails you can share with your kids:

Snails have lots of tiny teeth, up to 20,000 in some types! Even though their mouths are small, they have super strong teeth. In fact, some snail teeth are even stronger than spider silk and can withstand really heavy pressures!

Snails need lots of moisture to live. When it’s too dry, they take long naps to make the slimy stuff that keeps them alive. Their naps can last from a few hours to 3 years! Imagine taking a super long nap like a snail!

Some snails are huge, like the Giant African Snail, which can be as long as a ruler and weigh as much as a small bag of sugar! But there are also tiny snails that are just a few centimeters long. How long snails live depends on where they live and the kind of snail they are. Some snails live about five years, but in homes, they can live as long as 25 years!

Most land snails have two sets of tentacles; the upper one carries the eyes, while the lower one has the olfactory organs for smelling. However, they do not have ears or ear canals.

Almost all snails’ activities occur at night because they are nocturnal animals. Snails do not like sunlight, which is why they are more active on cloudy days.
