Here’s a simple tutorial for drawing a cafe. Make it as quaint as you like with old doors and manicured landscaping.





  1. Prep: Print or fold paper to make guide lines.
  2. Students follow the Cafe tutorial to draw the shop.
  3. The drawing is traced with a black Sharpie.
  4. The drawing is painted with tempera paints. It’s best to keep the building colors dark and bold and the sky a more watery blue for contrast.
