✏️ TOOLS FOR SUCCESS

  • How-To-Draw Template – International (A4) or U.S. Size (8.5×11 in)
  • Sketching Pencil
  • Polymer Eraser
  • Outline Marker
  • Coloring Tools

🎨 Parents: The only tools you need for these how-to-draw tutorials are: eraser, pencil, and a piece of paper. But – if you have them around – a sketching pencil makes for fainter and softer lines that help kids build fine motor accuracy. I also recommend going over the sketch pencil with a black outline marker when you’re done for a neater finish. Lastly, erase the pencil marks before adding color.

Simple Guide on How to Draw a Chair 

  1. Draw a parallelogram on your paper, then connect two long vertical lines on the shape’s upper two corners.
  2. Enclose the vertical lines by connecting them through a horizontal line. 
  3. Add details to the back post of the chair by drawing a square inside the rectangular shape. Ensure that the square inside has a little distance from the rectangle and occupies only half of the rectangle. 
  4. Draw lines under the parallelogram tracing it. Then, connect them with short vertical lines in between, 
  5. Under the seat, draw four rectangular shapes connected on each corner of the parallelogram. The rectangular legs will have different lengths, but they will all look as if they have the same size as you finish it. 
  6. Let’s hit it with a brown color to look like a wooden chair.
