Why Choose This Christmas Tree Drawing Tutorial?

This straightforward tutorial provides a simplified approach to drawing the layers of a tree, minimizing the complexity of detailed branches. By focusing on sections that gradually expand, this method allows for easy drawing and provides the option to incorporate shadows, if desired. (Please note that a traditional branch-style tree drawing tutorial can be found further below on this page.) The simple elements of this version combine to create a Christmas tree drawing that is accessible for young artists to learn and replicate. Increased success in their drawings will encourage students to continue honing their artistic skills.

To give your tree drawing an interesting twist, consider placing it in an unconventional location. While trees in homes can be visually appealing, a tree in a remote setting evokes curiosity and tells a story. Who placed it there? Is it intended for residents or visitors? Who are the presents meant for?

When selecting your medium for the Christmas tree drawing, crayons can work perfectly fine. However, if your budget allows for it, I recommend investing in high-quality markers such as the Stabilo brand mentioned in the materials list below. These markers produce vibrant colors, excel at detailing small elements, and even create subtle shadows when layered. Adding an additional layer of green on the right side of the Christmas tree adds dimension, while a light gray outline can enhance shadows.

Drawing Tip: Creating a Snowy Background

To maintain a fresh and white appearance for the background snow, instruct your students to avoid drawing small circles with a pencil or black marker. Instead, they should stop after tracing the tree and mountains, and use a sky blue color to outline the snow. When filling in the background, this technique will result in delicate and visually pleasing snow without any dark lines, creating a lighter and more ethereal sky.

How to Create Drawing Guides for Your Christmas Tree Tutorial

A great way to help students start any drawing tutorial successfully is by teaching them how to use guides as reference points.

You may have noticed that all the tutorials on this site feature dashed lines running through the center of each step in both horizontal and vertical directions. By encouraging students to create their own centered lines on their paper before drawing, they will have an easy reference to follow. Drawing skills rely on achieving accurate sizes and placements of lines on paper, so having a visual reference point at the beginning will significantly aid the learning process.

However, this doesn’t mean students need to use a ruler to draw a thick line down the center of their paper before starting. In fact, that could be difficult to erase and might distract from the final artwork. Instead, instruct them to fold the sheet of paper in half both ways, make a crease, and then unfold it. The beauty of this technique is that the creases will vanish by the time the drawing is completed and colored.

Now, let’s dive into the Christmas Tree drawing project!
