Gnome Drawing with Analogous Colors




Draw a gnome for any time of the year!  Add colors to the gnome drawings to match the season, or do the analogous color activity included.

Are you a little gnome crazy like me?  You’ll have so much fun with these gnome drawing tutorials and drawing games!  Get directed drawing help getting started with lots of drawing choices so that no 2 gnomes will look alike!  You’ll also get some analogous color selection help along with a step-by-step technique guide.  Then 2 writing prompts to follow up with a writing activity about your gnome.  

The analogous colors are totally optional but would be great for gnomes made in the art room. Classroom teachers might enjoy having students make a gnome using school colors or to celebrate a holiday like drawing a Christmas gnome or Valentine’s gnome … the possibilities are endless!

We loved using this resource as an art project.  Some students loved choosing their own gnome parts, while others enjoyed rolling the dice and seeing how it turned out.  Excellent resource!  🙂

This seller went above and beyond with the handouts and options for the user.  Students could choose to roll or follow the step by step process.  These were adorable and a really fun winter project.  Each artist was successful because of the simple instructions.

Cute and simple drawings. I paired this with learning about Sweden and holidays for added fun. The handouts are easy to follow and gives the kids options for creating unique gnomes.

The author gave multiple ways to use this activity. I used the straightforward direction sheet and the various beards/legs/hats sheet front to back. My classroom is decorated in gnomes, so this was a back to school activity to practice following directions. I have brand new fourth graders. I wouldn’t help them at all. They had to follow directions, make a decision on their design, and color it to turn in. The students were engaged and it was a great intro into talking about individual responsibility to follow directions and to try to work through frustration.

~ Tracye S.


The gnome drawing pages allow your students to practice following directions, fine motor skills, problem-solving, creative thinking, and much more. The best part? It requires no prep on your end! So get this lesson and be ready to teach it tomorrow!
