Easy How to Draw the Pyramids Tutorial and Pyramids Coloring Page

Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a the Pyramids and a Pyramids Coloring Page. It’s fun to place them in their natural surroundings, hot sun, sand, shadows and all.

Pyramids Drawing

Now students can take their pyramid drawing to a new level, by both drawing them with a shadow to look 3D, and placing them in their natural setting. It’s easy to add a few hills of sand and palm trees to create a desert oasis, once you see an example of what that might look like. Add the branches of one in the foreground, a tree in the middle ground, and pyramids in the background, and you have the makings of a really lovely drawing that includes these historic symbols of Egypt.

Materials to draw a the Pyramid

  • 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.
  • Note: All of the above are Amazon affiliate links.

  1. Oh thanks, you’re absolutely right! Sometimes I miss the obvious things, so I appreciate feedback so I can correct that. Will do right away so not to confuse any more students. Thanks so much for taking time out to let me know. Kathy

  2. I’m a volunteer art teacher for a first grade class. This lesson worked great for them, and I was able to tie in 6 of the 7 elements of art: line, shape, form, value, space, and color. BUT – am I wrong, but is the shadow side of the pyramids supposed to be on the other side – away from the sunlit side? OR – maybe the sun should go on the left side of the pyramids?
