How to Draw a Menorah

Learn how to draw a Menorah with this easy step by step tutorial. The classic shape is one of the most recognizable of all the menorahs.

Menorahs come in all sizes and shapes, but if you want to draw the classic version with the curved arms, this is the best way I know to do it.

Planning the arm placement first with light lines is the best way to insure that the arms are as balanced and even as possible. Be mindful though that most young artists tend to draw really heavy, so they will need to be extra mindful of Step 3 that says to draw LIGHTLY. It’s the best way to make sure those planning lines can later be erased and leave impression behind.

This menorah has just the classic blue color, but many include lots of fun patterns and colors too. It might be good practice for students to design their own.
