House Drawing for Kids

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

One of the first things that kids learn how to draw is a house, and those first ones are really about just putting simple shapes together. Most likely a triangle roof on a square home. That’s a time of experimenting and trying to remember all the things they know they sometimes see in houses. Windows, doors and chimneys and more, but usually in a one-dimensional form. 

When students have conquered all those details, and want to try to make their house look more real, then this tutorial might be fun for them. The side angles back a bit to give the house some form, and the roof has added dormer windows that are easy to draw if you have an example to follow.
