Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Cube and a Cube Coloring Page. This one involves no erasing, which works great for those just starting out.
Some How to Draw a Cube tutorials 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.
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.
