Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Reindeer Face and a Reindeer Face Coloring Page. Add a fun sweater when you are finished.
When students learn how to draw animals, the usual approach is to draw, trace and then color everything in. This how to draw a Reindeer Face project adds a little twist or two. Namely adding some black on white texture lines on the face and then a colorful sweater below.
The concept is rather simple, as students will probably see. The reindeer starts with some easy shapes and then the sweater can be whatever little bit of fashion they might dream up. The contrast of the two, one lots of color and one not, makes for a very interesting drawing.
Please remember that if students like the orderliness of the small lines on this sample drawing, and want to create the same effect, it does take time. They can use the brow line to help them get started with their rows, and then just continue until the areas are filled in. Changing the closeness of the lines will also help them make the fur look either darker or lighter.

- Drawing Paper. Don’t substitute it with copy paper or construction paper. The surface will get fuzzy, erasing might cause holes, and the colors will generally not look as bright.
- Pencil. The Ticonderoga brand are the most reliable, make nice dark lines when you need them, and are the easiest to erase.
- Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips. Stabilo Markers. They have the best colors, the best tips, and last the longest.
- Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent markers make nice black lines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them in areas with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath for table protection.
- Stabilo Markers. The large pack provides lots of fun color choices, several shades of each color, including a few choices for skin. The tips are perfect for coloring, and there’s even a promise that they will work after being uncapped for 8 weeks!
