How Do You Draw a Simple Tent for Camping?

Drawing a simple tent for camping is an easy task with the right tools and techniques. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced artist, you can create a realistic and attractive drawing of a tent in just a few steps.

To start, you’ll need to gather all the necessary materials: paper, pencil, eraser, ruler and a compass. Once you have your supplies ready, it’s time to begin sketching.

Draw two curved lines, one for the top of the tent and one for the bottom. Make sure that they are symmetrical and that the distance between them is even throughout the whole sketch.

Next, draw two slightly curved lines between the two sides of each line to form the sides of your tent.

Now it’s time to add details like windows or doors. To do this, use your ruler to draw angled lines from each side of your tent shape in order to create a rectangular shape that will serve as your window or door frame. Once those are drawn in place, draw shorter angled lines within them to add texture and definition.

Add Finishing Touches

To finish off your drawing of a camping tent, use your eraser to soften any hard edges you may have made while drawing in your details. You can also use shading techniques like cross-hatching or stippling to give your tent more depth and realism.


Drawing a simple tent for camping is easy when you have the right tools and techniques at hand. With just a few basic steps – gathering supplies, sketching out curves for the sides of your tent, adding details like windows or doors – you can create an attractive drawing that looks realistic enough for any camping trip.
