Time needed: 20 minutes

How to Draw a Star

  1. Draw the first two lines.

    These two lines should look like the letter A without a center horizontal line. This step is about getting the proportions right, so a faint sketch might be preferable, allowing for adjustments if necessary.

  2. Add two more lines.

    Next, draw two straight lines coming down from the ends of the ‘V’ shape to create a tent-like figure. Make sure these lines are symmetrical and meet at the same point at the bottom.

  3. Add the last line of the star.

    In this step, add two more lines to complete the star’s frame. The intersection of the lines should be clean and precise, with each section of the star being even and proportional.

  4. Erase the guidelines.

    So, evaluate the entire star drawing and remove the extra lines. Take your time to make the outline smooth and even, erasing any extra lines from the previous steps for a neat appearance.

  5. Color the star drawing.

    I decided to paint my star drawing yellow, but you can of course choose any other color. You can also add a few highlights or shadows to add complexity and life to your drawing.

  • Keep your pencil sharp! A sharp point helps you make those neat, crisp edges for a star that truly stands out.
  • Rotate your paper as you draw each line. It’s like spinning in space – it makes for smoother angles and a stellar shape.
  • If drawing straight lines feels like a cosmic challenge, use a ruler or the edge of another piece of paper to guide your spaceship… I mean, pencil!
  • And remember, stars come in all shapes and sizes in the vast universe of art. So if your star looks a bit different, it’s just unique, and that’s awesome!
