When you need to learn how to draw a bunny face easy enough for beginner artists, start with this tutorial. The basic shapes allow for all kinds of coloring variations.
Spring and bunnies just go together, regardless of the holidays you may celebrate this time of year. So adding a large (and might I add pretty cute!) bunny drawing to your collection of spring art projects is a no-brainer.
This tutorial in particular is one of those that is perfect for younger elementary students, even kinders. Even if they are just learning how to follow step by step instructions, this might be a good one to try out. The recognizable shapes and lines (circles, half circles, curves, zig zags) are all familiar and easy to recognize. The fact that they are all placed symmetrically on the paper is a plus too.
There are lots of coloring options for this bunny, once the drawing is finished. Students could go natural with a combination of brown, grays and white, or completely abstract like a made up Easter bunny too. The sample shown above was actually layered with crayons, gray and gold first, brown on top. Not all crayons will do that, but it’s always nice to know some do, in case that’s all that is available.

- Drawing Paper. Don’t substitute it with copy paper or construction paper. The surface will get fuzzy, erasing might cause holes, and the colors will generally not look as bright.
- 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 markers make nice black lines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them in areas with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath for table protection.
- 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 in the smaller boxes.
- Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors, and seem a bit richer than ones Prang has.
Time needed: 45 minutes.
