Draw an Easy Cow Face

The best way to learn how to draw an easy cow face is to make it with simple, symmetrical shapes.

Easy Cow Face Drawing

If your students are past learning how to draw an oversimplified cartoonish cow, but don’t need a full on 3D shaded version either, then this tutorial might be just the ticket.

Start with a symmetrical face, then add a body going off to one side, and BAM! You have a pretty realistic looking bovine.

  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips.
  • Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make nice black outlines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath to protect your tables.
  • Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you buy their larger boxes.
  • Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that seem a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.


Time needed: 45 minutes.
