Easy How to Draw a School Tutorial

If you want to learn how to draw a school, this basic version is a good place to start. You can always customize it with your own school name and colors.

Schools come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, of course. But as students learn about the world around them, and try to capture it on paper, they might need help when it comes to drawing something like a basic school.

For those that need an idea of what at average school might look like, this one might do. It is a couple of stories tall, has lots of windows, and some fun brick color too. Perhaps most importantly, there’s lots of room to customize the name of the school on top.

If anyone has trouble getting the name to fit in one line, they could always make the rectangle taller by moving the bottom edge down closer to the windows. Goodness knows that you need a lot of space even just to write “Elementary School”, let alone any wording before it!

Materials for How to Draw a School

  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips.
  • Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make nice black outlines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath to protect your tables.
  • Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you buy their larger boxes.
  • Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that seem a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.
