Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Mushroom and a Mushroom coloring page. There’s even a tracing page to try out, which is good for fine motor skill practice too.
This How to draw a Mushroom tutorial is designed to help students draw a very natural looking one, with an underside point of view. It provides a clear view of those radial lines that are seen under the cap, and can easily be shaded for some extra dimension too.
It’s easy to see why so many imaginations have turned a mushroom into tiny little homes for mythical creatures though. Their sturdy umbrella like shape just seem to be perfect for that kind of job. I hope this tutorial helps students develop a new appreciation for this amazing little plant!
