Draw the White House

Here’s an easy way to draw the White House, if you happen to be studying American symbols. I’ve simplified it to help students draw all of its many columns and windows.

I’ve found that there’s nothing like some grid paper to help students draw buildings, especially one with so many windows, so I’ve included one in my download. It also adds some math to this drawing lesson as they need to be counted to make their building as symmetrical as possible.
