Easy How to Draw Corn Tutorial and Corn Coloring Page

Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw Corn and a Corn coloring page. The trick is to start with a grid so you can line up all those kernels in neat and order rows.

Fall art brings a new palette of colors, and there’s nothing like drawing an ear of corn to include as many in one place as possible. All those colorful little kernels look amazing, especially when they all line up in nice an even rows.

But rather than just drawing lots and lots of little squares, OR drawing just a quick grid, this tutorial will show students how to do a little of each. By creating a light grid to plan the rows first, and then filling them with rounded kernel shapes, they are guaranteed to have a very orderly ear of corn when they are done.

Another tip? If you need some large size decorations for an event, say a fall festival, try this drawing process on a long sheet of butcher paper. A few black Sharpies and crayons can do some amazing things together!

Materials for How to Draw Corn on the Cob

  • 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.
