How to Draw the USA Continent

Artist: Dawn / September 22, 2015

Step 1.

The best way to start this lesson is to begin from left to right. Draw a straight line from the left, and as you follow the line the outline or border of the U.S starts to take shape. The mass you are drawing are the borders of Minnesota, Wisconsin a   

Step 2.

Follow the shape south and you will be drawing the ridges or edges of New Jersey, Delaware, Washington D.C., Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona.

Step 3.

Lastly, you will draw out the rest of the shape to form the edges of states; California, Oregon and Washington.

Step 4.

Finally, draw out the state of Alaska which is much smaller than the United States continent.

Step 5.

If you want a solid image just color it in. If you want a design draw it in.

Step 6.

You are all done. Now you can add detailing or effects that you like.

Description: Since school is in session I know kids are going to need references to complete history assignments that involves the United States continent. That is why I wanted to make a super cool tut on how to draw the USA Continent, step by step. I do have a lesson on drawing the United States, but that one has all the different sections for each state of the United States. This lesson is just for the continent itself without the states included. To make the effects really nice, I created a flag background and included the Constitution for background art. I love the way this continent came out, and I hope that you school kids find this lesson useful for a history assignment you may have in the future.
