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.

How to Draw a Cube Step by Step Materials

  • 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 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.
