How to Draw a Cube

There is more than one way to learn how to draw a cube. This one involves no erasing, which works great for those just starting out.

A cube is a solid three-dimensional figure with 6 square faces. Many students learn how to make one for math or geometry class by cutting out a cross shaped template and folding it together so they can understand how it goes together.

Drawing is also good practice for seeing how a square can turn into a cube. Some examples you might find on the internet involve drawing the front and then the back, and then connecting the two. That involves a little more dimensional thinking though, so for that reason I like this version of just drawing the front, then the sides, and then connecting the ends. There’s no need to erase anything, and is perhaps a little easier to understand.
