Here’s a collection of easy fall drawing ideas that all come with helpful step by step tutorials. Learning how to draw one step at a time is always a great way to get go.
Fall Grid Drawing Tutorial
Now students can make a simple fall drawing project that adds a little bit of math to their art lesson.
This project starts by making a grid that can be ESTIMATED to break the page into thirds. The first vertical line starts about two thirds of the way across, and the two horizontal ones about a third down and up. It just so happens that the fall shapes will fit nicely into those size boxes, and is guaranteed to have a nice BALANCE (Principle of Design) when complete.
Young students might do best by just concentrating on drawing the shapes, but those looking for more of a challenge could add some shading too. That pumpkin is just begging to have some yellow highlights with orange shadows.
Are your students a bit young to draw the grid themselves? Or is your class time extra short these days? No problem, just click on the red button below to open the Frame file so you can download and print a copy.

Materials to make an Easy Fall Drawing
- Pencil. The Ticonderoga brand are the most reliable, make nice dark lines when you need them, and are the easiest to erase. Buying the pre-sharpened ones will save busy teachers a lot of time.
- Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tip erasers, especially when erasing leftover pencil lines after tracing.
- 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.
