How To Draw Alexander Hamilton (The Forgotten Founding Father) in 8 Easy Steps

Hamilton was the head of the first U.S. treasury and despite coming from poverty and orphaned at a young age, he became one of the core founding fathers of America starting at a young age. Many politicians have mixed legacies and Hamilton was one of those politicians. He was a nationalist (meaning desire for strong central control, aka Washington government.) When he became the head of treasury, he knew he needed to unite the nation’s debt and create a central currency. It was monumentally important; can you imagine the first 13 states of the United States with their own currency? Thanks to his life work, he is now the face of the twenty-dollar bill.

🖍️ Tools For Success

🎨 Parents: The only tools you need to use these how-to-draw tutorials are: an eraser, a pencil, and a piece of paper. But – if you have them around – a sketching pencil makes for fainter and softer lines that help kids build fine motor accuracy. I also recommend going over the sketch pencil with a black outline marker when you’re done for a neater finish. Lastly, erase the pencil marks before adding color.
