Easy How to Draw a Grasshopper Tutorial and Grasshopper Coloring Page


Below you will locate an simple step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Grasshopper and a Grasshopper Coloring Page. Save it for when you want to draw a single that appears genuine, but is nonetheless kinda cute.

Most of the “how to draw a grasshopper” tutorials that I have noticed have either been meant for children just studying how to draw (the circle head is a dead giveaway) or ideal for higher schoolers studying how to shade. That’s rather a gap, to say the least.

What’s an older elementary student to do? Well, here’s a new simple tutorial that has all the important science-y body components (head, thorax, wing, abdomen) with a touch of cuteness also. A tiny twinkle in the eye adds some storybook charm to what otherwise may possibly be just more of a grasshopper diagram. Why not have a tiny of every?

Materials to Draw a Grasshopper

  • Drawing Paper. This is the great stuff you can obtain in bulk for a great price tag.
  • Pencils. Don’t waste your revenue on the least expensive brand. These make good dark lines.
  • Black Marker. The ideal medium size tip marker for tracing.
  • Crayons. I like this non-toxic brand that is produced from beeswax, not petroleum by-merchandise.
  • Note: All of the above are Amazon affiliate hyperlinks.
