Easy How to Draw a Helicopter Tutorial and Helicopter Coloring Page

Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Helicopter and a Helicopter Coloring Page. A step by step tutorial shows students where to start.

A drawing of helicopter, made with the help of an easy step by step tutorial.

This tutorial is designed to help students learn how to draw a helicopter that is a bit fancier than just an oval with a tail, but is not a complicated 3D shape either. The fuselage is made by stacking a few simple shapes together, which when complete, looks like a pretty detailed helicopter.

If your students are learning about transportation, here are a few fun facts to know about helicopters.

  • Helicopters are able to take off and landing vertically, hovering and flying in different directions.
  • The lift and thrust of helicopters are provided by spinning rotors, usually with two or more blades.
  • Helicopters typically have one main rotor and one smaller rotor in the tail which keeps the helicopter from spinning around.

Materials to draw a Helicopter

  • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
  • Pencils. Don’t waste your money on the cheapest brand. These make nice dark lines.
  • Black Marker. The perfect medium size tip marker for tracing.
  • Crayons. I like this non-toxic brand that is made from beeswax, not petroleum by-products.
