7 Summer Drawing Ideas for Kids

A little girl looks up at the "Summer Drawing Ideas" title

I’m excited to share with you a list of 7 fun summer drawing ideas for keeping kids drawing all summer long! These ideas range from capturing beach scenes to exploring nature’s wonders and everything in between. Whether it’s sketching vibrant flowers or drawing the adventures of outdoor activities, these prompts are designed to ignite the imagination and keep the artistic spirit alive.

There’s more! I also have a printable list and an inspiration page with the same 7 ideas plus 9 more. This page can be used as a starting point for their own artistic explorations or simply as a source of inspiration to fuel their creativity.

To access these resources, simply click on the following link: Download the Printable Resource. The file is in PDF format, making it easy to print and distribute among your students or children. Feel free to share this link with other art educators and parents who may find it valuable for their young artists.

Ideas for Sketchbook Drawing in the Summer:

  1. Beach scenes: Draw the ocean, sand, palm trees, and beach umbrellas in your sketchbook.
  2. Flowers: Draw colorful flowers such as sunflowers, daisies, and roses that bloom in the summer.
  3. Water activities: Draw people surfing, kayaking, waterskiing, or swimming in the lake or ocean.
  4. Wildlife: Sketch animals such as birds, butterflies, and bees that are common in the summer.
  5. Summer fashion: Sketch fashionable summer outfits, including flowing dresses, sunglasses, handbags, sandals, and straw hats.
  6. Sunsets: Capture the beauty of a summer sunset with vibrant colors in your sketchbook.
  7. Travel destinations: Draw the scenery and landmarks of places you want to visit in the summer.

This is just the start! I have 9 more ideas that I’d love to share with you in a format that will make it easy to use with your students.

You can get the Free Summer Drawing Ideas List and Inspiration Page for free to share with your students!

I hope that these ideas and the inspiration page will encourage children to spend their summer exploring the world of art and honing their artistic skills. Drawing can be a wonderful way for children to express themselves, relax, unleash their imaginations, and capture memories. Wishing you and your students/children a summer filled with artistic adventures and joy!
