The Leaning Tower of Pisa Drawing

A drawing of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, made with the help of an easy step by step tutorial

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is a beloved symbol of Italy, and covered in many studies about the country.

You could just have students freehand its uniquely slanted architecture, but chances are that a grid that is kind of “preslanted” will allow them to really capture all those amazing layers and arches. That’s why the tutorial you can download below has exactly the grid shown on page 2.

Materials for Leaning Tower of Pisa

  • 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.
