Today we are drawing a Star.

Stars can be tricky, so have that eraser ready!

Once I learned to draw them I remember practicing them everyday.

You can add to your star, extra layers, a fancy glow, make it taller or longer, make a group of them. Limitless, just like you.

We will start with a simple star shape and go from there…

Supplies for drawing stars

  Artist tip: As with any drawing it’s important to recognize how much space you are working with.

To do this, point to the middle of your paper with your finger or pencil.

This will tell your eyes how much space you have to draw in.

It does not have to be exact! 

Let’s get started:

How to draw a star from 2 dots

1. First above the middle dot, up towards the top put another dot.

2. From that top dot draw and A shape without the line that goes across the middle.

You can choose to use your ruler.

4. Now, from the right side where the last line ended, draw a diagonal line down to the bottom of the left line. (The only open end.)

Erase lines to sketch a star

1. Here’s where the eraser comes in: erase the lines inside the star shape.

Also, this is the time to adjust any points that may be too short or uneven.
