How to Draw a Menorah

When showing students how to draw a menorah, have them start with light lines to plan all the arms. This will help to space things evenly.

Menorahs come in all sizes and colors, but they do need to start with this basic shape. My tutorial is good for maybe 3rd graders on up, but if you want to do this with lower grades, I would give them a drawing with the arm “spine” lines already in place. There’s still plenty of creativity that can still happen with patterns and colors on the arms.
