Easy How to Draw Buildings Tutorial and Buildings Coloring Page

Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Building and a Building Coloring Page. It’s one of the first steps to learning about perspective.

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

When students start to learn more about squares and cubes, they might be ready to apply those ideas to real life and learn how to draw a building. And not just any building, but buildings that look 3D! Their cityscape drawings will go to a whole new level when they learn how to add some sides to their buildings, so they can have some dimension to them.

This tutorial walks students through the easiest way I know to draw a row of buildings. If they start with a row of rectangles, various heights and sharing sides, it will simplify the process of adding depth to them. Once they add diagonal corner lines all going in the same direction, the final step of connecting them becomes easier to see and do. A closer look at the step by step directions below will help explain that.

Materials for Buildings Drawing

  • 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.
