Magnificent Pineapples – a Texture Wonder
The beautiful body of the pineapple makes a great subject for drawings, especially for beginners. Why, you ask? Well, kiddos are familiar with the texture of this tropical fruit, they've felt its unique pattern, savored its juicy sweetness, and been poked by its leafy crown.
Drawing the pineapple scales, the fine lines that give its skin its characteristic texture come naturally to them. It’s not like trying to sketch an alien from a parallel universe, right?
Moreover, the pineapple sketch process is quite simple, really. Van Gogh may have had his complicated still lives, but our pineapple drawing is child's play!
All it takes is a few easy steps, some dark green paint for the longest leaves, and light pencil lines for the main body of your pineapple, and voila! They've created their own pineapple illustration with minimal effort.
What's more? The fun part is, they get to express their unique world on paper. Maybe their pineapple has a pop of rainbow color, or perhaps it's a mix of different shades of yellow and green. There's no right or wrong in art, and that’s the beauty of it!
Drawing – An Essential Skill
Drawing is more than just an artistic pursuit. It's a skill that paves the way for a bunch of developmental benefits. From boosting hand-eye coordination to fine-tuning their fine motor skills, drawing does it all! And the best part? All they need is a simple piece of printer paper and a pencil or pen. How convenient is that?
For this simple tutorial, you can also make it bigger if you want. Want to pull out the paints? Or maybe you could draw it with chalk on the sidewalk? When kids learn to draw, there’s no wrong way for them to learn.
Drawing is often the precursor to learning to write. Large shapes and simple shapes come easier to little hands, and as they perfect their drawing skills, their writing also improves. So, in teaching them how to draw a pineapple, you're also aiding their writing skills. Now that's what I call a win-win!
So, grab that paper, pick up your drawing tool, and let's get started on our pineapple step! There's a world of pineapples waiting to be explored, from the top of the pineapple to the crown of leaves. It's going to be so much fun!

Now onto the cute pineapple drawing!!
How To Draw a Pineapple
The first step in drawing the pineapple body is a vertical oval shape.
The next step in the drawing process is the pattern of the pineapple skin. I recommend drawing long oval shapes and making a crisis cross pattern.
The next step is to draw the leaves of your pineapple. The top leaves are drawn with curved lines that come to a point around the top part of the pineapple.
The last step is to draw small details into the crown leaves within each of the individual leaves and the finishing up the pattern on the skin.
The final step is to clean up any extra light lines. Once you have your drawing where you want it, we like to go over the lines with a hard pencil line and outline the pineapple with a thin black marker.
Color in your pineapple with a beautiful color. Using crayons, markers or even acrylic paint can be fun too!
