How to Draw a Nutcracker

Nuts often have very hard shells that must be cracked open to get to the "goodies" or "nut fruit" inside. Before the invention of the nutcracker, this was done using a smashing tool, such as a hammer. Hinged nutcrackers may have been used in ancient Greece, and are documented from the fourteenth century in Europe.

Since at least the fifteenth century, carved wooden nutcrackers in the form of kings, knights, soldiers, and other persons have been popular.

A German legend states that a puppet maker made the first nutcracker and won a nut shelling competition. The nutcracker has a lever on the back to open and close the mouth, thus cracking the nut inserted inside.

​​Nutcrackers entered the traditions of North America around 1940. The Nutcracker ballet had been performed in the U.S. for the first time, and World War II soldiers had been exposed to the dolls while in Europe.

Today, most nutcrackers are kept for decorative purposes. Why? Modern technology allows consumers to affordably purchase nuts that have already been removed from the shell.

How to Draw a Golf Club Bag

The game of golf arose in Scotland in the fifteenth century, where it was soon banned by the king.

A golf bag is used to transport all the equipment needed to play the game of golf, including golf clubs, golf balls, tees, and gloves. Historically, golf bags were constructed of leather, but today they are often made of nylon or canvas.

How to Draw a Crying Emoji

In this electronic age, emojis are everywhere, from text messages and emails to clothing, jewelry, school supplies, home furnishings, candies, and more. In 2017, the characters even starred in their first feature film, The Emoji Movie.

What is an emoji? The small cartoons were first introduced by a Japanese cell phone company in 1999, and they generally represent emotions, places, or common objects, such as pets, clothing, and food. The smiley face on which the emoji was based, however, has a much longer history. The earliest smiley face design in art can be seen on a 4,000 year old clay pot recently unearthed by archaeologists. The classic yellow smiley face emerged in the 1960s, during three unrelated advertising campaigns.

The emoji in this tutorial is not smiling, however. He's displaying one of the most universal signs of unhappiness - he's shedding a tear. Crying can result from anger, fear, pain, sadness, and sometimes even joy. It is a form of non-verbal communication that allows us to share our feelings with others - just as the crying emoji allows us to share our feelings in a typed message.

Would you like to draw a crying emoji? Doing so is simple with the help of this easy, step-by-step drawing guide. All you will need is a pencil or a pen, and a sheet of paper. You may also wish to use crayons, colored pencils, markers, or something else to shade your finished picture.

Another guess is that it may have been played with cork stoppers from barrels of an ale called "hock" or "hocky."

Did you know? Games similar to hockey - those played by striking a ball with a curved stick - have been around since ancient times.

Other hockey-like games have been played in Ireland and Mongolia for a thousand years.

How to Draw a Clarinet

The clarinet is a woodwind instrument. It is played by blowing through the mouthpiece and pressing keys to form different notes. A single reed is attached to the mouthpiece. It is the vibration of this reed that produces the sound.

It is thought that the clarinet was invented in Germany around the year 1700. The name "clarinet" likely comes from the French terms for trumpet, as this new instrument made playing the high notes written for trumpet players much easier. Early clarinets may have sounded more like the trumpet. Today, clarinets are used by soloists, marching bands, and orchestras.

Did you know? There are at least 12 different kinds of clarinet, but the B-flat clarinet is the most popular. Most are made of wood, but all-metal clarinets also exist.
