Star Drawing

 A drawing of a Star, made with the help of an easy step by step tutorial.

Years of working with kinders and first graders in the classroom taught me that learning how to draw a star is one thing they often needed help with. Some may have picked up how to draw a star in one continuous line, and some may not have. All benefitted though when they slowed down and did a little more planning first. The process of plotting out the five end points and then slowly connecting them with straight lines, seemed to work well for everyone, and was used as the starting point for many a star-themed project.

Materials to Draw a Star

  • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
  • Pencils. I like how this brand always makes nice dark lines.
  • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a dark black color.
  • Crayons. The larger packs are nice for more color choices.
