FREE ART LESSON + PROJECT FOR KIDS

DRAW AN ICE CREAM TRUCK

In this project, you'll learn how easily you can draw straight lines and curved lines to create an ice cream truck. Then put your own personal spin on the truck with a business name and spunky color.

My favorite part about this project... there are no mistakes in art! Have fun drawing and choosing colors for your truck to make it unique.

SUPPLIES NEEDED

  • White paper

  • Ultra fine tip black marker

  • Colored markers

  • Cloth/paper to protect table

TIME NEEDED

The video is approximately 20 minutes, but the actual project may take closer to 30 minutes to complete depending on how much color you decide to add. Remember, this video can be paused at any point if you need more time to complete a step.

AGE LEVEL

This art lesson + project is for all ages but geared towards the elementary level.

YOUNGER STUDENT OPTION

Have a preschooler or younger child who wants to create alongside their older sibling but is not quite ready to follow along with the video? A printable version of the ice cream truck drawing is available (free!). Print the pdf copy and encourage your child to trace and color the drawing: Ice Cream Truck Coloring Page.

PARENT/TEACHER TIP

Want to use a different medium? Great, change it up! Draw the ice cream truck using colored pencils; you could even choose to add using using watercolor paints. Just be sure to draw it on watercolor paper.

For another option, skip the truck drawing and forward straight to the ice cream portion of the video. Fill up your entire paper drawing only the ice cream and cone... choose your favorite medium and color or paint it.
