How to Draw a Scarecrow

Learn how to draw a Scarecrow with this step by step tutorial. His body is made from lots of easy to draw shapes.

The classic scarecrow, with the patched overalls and straw-stuffed body never seems to grow out of style, as far as fall art goes. This one is made from some extra simple shapes, so that makes him pretty drawable for all ages.

Looking to add a little educational value to your lesson too? Then point out that the hills are part of the BACKGROUND of the drawing, and the corn is in the FOREGROUND. It’s never too soon to get those words and concepts added to their vocabulary. In fact, some tiny trees on the distant hills might add some extra SPACE to their drawing too.



Time needed: 45 minutes.
