Drawing the Grinch

This How to Draw the Grinch tutorial shares how each part of his unique face needs to be drawn. Once those lines are in place, the rest is a breeze, regardless of whether students finish with crayons, markers or paint.

The Grinch is the main character of the classic children’s book How the Grinch Stole Christmas! by Dr. Seuss. He is depicted as a hairy, pot-bellied, pear-shaped, snub-nosed creature with a cat-like face and cynical personality.

Thanks to untold number of movies and spinoffs, most children will recognize his very specific face, but may need a little help drawing some of those details. The green color is a given, of course, but those eyes and that smile need to be drawn a certain way to make him look the most Grinch-like.

Why Draw with Guides?

You may have noticed that all of the tutorials on this website have a dashed vertical line and horizontal line running through the center of each step. If students make their own centered lines on their own paper, before drawing, they will have an easy reference to follow. All they need to do is fold their sheet of paper in half both ways, make a crease, and unfold. The best part is, by the time the drawing is done and colored in, the creases will have disappeared!

Materials for a Grinch Drawing

  • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
  • Pencils. I like how this brand always makes nice dark lines.
  • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a dark black color.
  • Crayons. The larger packs are nice for more color choices.
  • Note: All of the above are Amazon affiliate links.
