Simple Landscape Drawing For Kids

Simple Landscape Drawing For Kids

Drawing For Kids is one of the kinds of artistic methods that make students sit up and pay notice is learning how to create perspectives. Realizing that art has laws is one of the things that is exciting. Kids understand the fundamentals of perspective, but when you adequately explain the vanishing point and how it relates to object size, they have an epiphany. I made this perspective landscape to help put the concept of perspective into practice.

Any project involving a landscape can use a drawing perspective, but in my opinion, it works best when a road is included. Roads are familiar, and many children know they get smaller the farther they are from the spectator. Roads were put in the picture’s centre for this lesson on the perspective landscape. I will start with this lesson if you are going to teach perspective for the first time.


  • I thought it would be interesting to have a different perspective for this lesson on perspective. I positioned the vanishing point over to one side of the paper rather than on the (horizontal) horizon line, as in the address mentioned above. Even though it is not in the centre of the form, it is still on the horizon line.
  • To begin, you’ll need a piece of white 12″ by 18″ paper, some rulers or straight edges, a pencil, and an eraser.
  • On the paper, draw a horizontal line down the middle. You might also fold the paper in half horizontally, as I did. The crease might then serve as the horizon line. After that, set the ruler on one side of the line at the edge of the paper. To the other edge of the page, trace an angled line.
  • Repeat, but this time go higher than the horizon. The angle lines don’t have to touch the corners because that would be excessively steep.
  • The angle lines, NOT the horizon line, will be where the cacti and the road are drawn. To avoid the kids misinterpreting this regulation, remove any horizon line markings.
    To illustrate the perspective, we decided to design a gravel road and a saguaro cactus.
  • To do this, begin by drawing a sizable cactus that rises from the two angle lines on one side of the paper. Draw the cactus as you usually would, moving it to the left side of the page. If the student keeps the cactus’ tip and base inside the two angle lines, the cactus will get smaller. Many people will start painting random cacti after forgetting the rule. At this point, I was having a good time with the kids since I made them erase their cactus and follow the rules. This was just a fun method to teach the principles of perspective. If you know me, you would know that I love it when students defy the rules of (art).
  • Next, the road is drawn. It lacks the cactus’ level of accuracy. The bottom line is followed by the two road lines, which start short or close at the paper’s vanishing point on the left side and gradually get longer as they approach the right side.
  • The pupils then finished their work by creating background, foreground, and desert details. They coloured using coloured pencils and markers, then went over their pencil lines with a black title.
