Easy How to Draw a Cottage Tutorial and Cottage Coloring Page

Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Cottage and a Cottage Coloring Page. Who says the bushes always have to be green?

Drawing of a Cottage

When it comes to learning how to draw a cottage, there’s no need to stop with just one layer in this or any landscape drawing. It will get some instant depth if they add extra foliage in the foreground and background too. Layering is one of the first steps to learn more about perspective.

This tutorial might come in handy if your student’s house drawings are looking all the same these days, with similar shapes and features. Instead of drawing just the main house shape, students could easily add a small addition to one side, and make the trim and landscaping extra colorful. The same goes for the coloring. Sometimes bushes and mountains flower in all kinds of different colors, so there are all kinds of possibilities there too.

Materials to draw a Cottage

  • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.

  • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a dark black color.
  • Crayons. The larger packs are nice for more color choices.
