Students can add a little twist to their Halloween projects by learning how to draw stacked pumpkins. Inspired by the classic snowman shape, it starts with a large, medium and small pumpkin and finishes with a fun hat and two arms.

It only takes a few little touches to make those pumpkins look a little more real. A couple of curves along the bottom, and wrinkle lines that extend up, will add some extra dimension.

Lastly, when drawing those branch arms, be sure to make them very thin curvy and thin. That’s what makes them look like branches, instead of just wooden sticks.

Getting Started with Drawing Guides

The best way to get students off to a good start to any drawing lesson is to show them how to use guides as a reference point.

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.

For instance, as seen in Step 1 below, this sketch starts with a large C shape that fills almost the bottom half of the paper. Those lines will help students scale their large, medium and small pumpkins.

When students get their drawing off to a good start, there’s a better chance of them feeling successful by the time they are done. Drawing skills are all about getting the size and placement of lines on paper. Having some visual reference point to get started, will always help anyone learn how to be a little more accurate.

So does that mean students need to get out a ruler to draw a big line down the center of their paper before they start? No, that will most likely be hard to erase and distract from any finished art. Instead, they simply fold the sheet of paper in half both ways, make a crease, and unfold. The beauty is that by the time the drawing is done and colored in, the creases will disappear.
