You can make a simple truck drawing by putting a few basic shapes together. Follow my tutorial to draw an easy classic one like my sample, or design your own.
If you have young artists who seem to be more interested in drawing mechanical things, instead of what I call “organic’ stuff (like faces and flowers) then by all means, please let them try out a vehicle tutorial or two. This one is especially easy as the main shapes fall right on the guidelines, so they can’t help but draw a truck that fills the page.
For some extra fun, have students add some seasonal things in the truck bed. Flowers, pumpkins, watermelons, see what they can think up. The more colorful it is, the more eye catching their drawing will be!
