A drawing of the face of the Statue of Liberty, made with the help of an easy step by step tutorial.

The Statue of Liberty is one of the most famous structures in the United States. Years ago, when immigrants passed through the halls of Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty was the first thing they saw.

Students that are learning about American symbols can learn to appreciate Lady Liberty even more when they take time to draw her face. There’s lots to learn about why there are 7 spikes on her crown, and how those rectangles are actually little windows that visitors were once allowed to look through.

When teachers have options about what media to use, this a great project to paint, as the green and blue on watercolor paper always makes a striking combination. This sample shows that just coloring her with crayons can make a lovely drawing too. Scroll down to see an example of a watercolor resist with some added crayon fireworks.

Materials for Statue of Liberty Drawing

  • 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.
