Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Rocket and a Rocket Coloring Page. The simple shapes keep it easy for even the younger artists.
Learning how to draw a rocket with a more old-fashioned look makes it easy for students of all age. Just mastering that curved body at an angle is tricky for some. If it helps, encourage students to rotate their paper a bit so they can draw their rocket straight going up and down.
Older students that are ready for an extra challenge may like to try shading the background from black to purple or blue. Sometimes even ordinary supplies, like crayons, can produce some pretty extraordinary results, when extra effort is given.
Whatever media they choose to use though, this is one drawing that that benefits from neat coloring. The darker the sky color, the brighter the rocket by contrast.
