How to Draw a Pickup Truck

Learn how to draw a Pickup Truck with this step by step tutorial. It starts with some basic shapes, but adds up to one classic looking truck.

If you have young artists who seem to be more interested in drawing mechanical things, instead of what I call “organic’ stuff (like faces and flowers) then by all means, have them try out a vehicle tutorial or two. This one is especially easy as the main shapes fall right on the guidelines, so they can’t help but draw a truck that fills up the entire page.

For some extra fun, have students add some seasonal things in the truck bed. Flowers, pumpkins, watermelons, see what they can think up. The more colorful it is, the more eye catching their drawing will be. Scroll down past the directions for an example that one student painted a while back.



Time needed: 30 minutes.
