Easy How to Draw a Country House Tutorial and Coloring Page

Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Country House and a House Coloring Page. This one has a few more interesting features than just your average house drawing.

Learning how to draw a house is always a fun project for young artists, as everyone is familiar with how they basically look. The only catch is that many students kind of get in a rut of always drawing them the same way. To encourage an interest in architecture, it’s nice to give students some inspiration for different possibilities. Keep scrolling down for a few more options besides just this one.

Drawing buildings calls for a more organized kind of thinking. Lines need to be neat and orderly, if one wants to draw something that looks like it is well-built and standing straight and tall.

Getting Started with Drawing Guides

The best way to get students off to a good start to any drawing lesson is to show them how to use guides as a reference point.

You may have noticed that all of the tutorials on this site have a dashed line running through the center of each step, in both horizontal and vertical directions. If students make their own centered lines on their own paper, before drawing, they will have an easy reference to follow.

Drawing skills are all about getting the size and placement of lines on paper, so having some visual reference point to get started, will always help anyone learn how to be a little more accurate.

So does that mean students need to get out a ruler to draw a big fat line down the center of their paper before they start? Goodness no, please don’t! That will most likely be hard to erase and distract from any finished art. No, simply fold the sheet of paper in half both ways, make a crease, and unfold. The beauty is that by the time the drawing is done and colored in, the creases will disappear.
