Easy How to Draw Corn Tutorial Video and Corn Coloring Page

Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial video 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!

Why Draw with Guides?

You may have noticed that all of the tutorials on this website have a dashed vertical line and horizontal line running through the center of each step. If students make their own centered lines on their own paper, before drawing, they will have an easy reference to follow. All they need to do is fold their sheet of paper in half both ways, make a crease, and unfold. The best part is, by the time the drawing is done and colored in, the creases will have disappeared!
