White House Drawing

White House Tutorial Video

When students learn how to draw the White House, they will not only have a better recollection of what it really looks like, they can also appreciate all of the wonderful symmetry it has. An architect named James Hoban won a contest to become its designer, and he based it on a house in Ireland called the Leinster House. This famous building took 8 years to complete, and was coated with a line-based white-wash to produce the color that gave rise to its famous nickname.

When it comes to drawing buildings this straight and orderly, there’s one aid that will really help students out. It actually is not a ruler, as they can be awkward for young hands to control and make things difficult to see. No, the best aid to help students along is to give them a pre-printed grid that matches a step by step tutorial. It helps them see how to make their lines straight, and adds some math to the project at the same time. After all, their White House drawing will have the most symmetry if they count out the boxes as they draw, so all those little shapes match each other. Please note that the tutorial you may download below includes a page with this grid.
