Whether you are looking for a how to draw a leaf, or have something that needs leaves added to the background, here’s a handy tutorial for you. It includes six basic types of leaves so students can just begin to learn the different names, without getting too scientific.

My experience is that some are easiest to draw when you start with veins first, and the leaf shape around then, and others visa versa. Either way, I hope this is a handy reference guide the next time you need some variety for your fall leaf art.

Media note: Crayons work great, but this can make a lovely watercolor painting too, as shown in my sample to the right. I recommended using real watercolor paper, a black Sharpie for a bleed-proof drawing and liquid watercolor paint. Extra dabs of color along the veins make for some fun wet-on-wet painting practice.

    Thanks Connie, I had kind of forgotten about the painting option. I just added the sample to the post showing the crayon version, to offer more options.

    I appreciate the feedback!

    Where’s your painted version of the fall leaf grid? Pretty sure you used liquid watercolors, right? It’s a great project, either way!
