Let’s learn how to draw a teacher – step by step kawaii style. A little while ago we showed you how to draw a student and received some really great feedback from that. Drawing a teacher will give you a chance to create some really cool classroom scenes using the student drawing combined with the teacher.

Our teacher tutorial will focus on the character itself, you can always add a chalkboard or anything else you think might look great with her.

In terms of difficulty, it’s fairly straight forward with a few details on the outfit and hair.

To help make this really easy to follow, we’ve made sure every step focuses on one detail at a time.

Otherwise, just pick whatever coloring tools you have around the house (crayons, markers, pencil crayons etc.) and just have some fun!

A Few Tips Before You Start Drawing

  • Feel free to change colors of the outfit, hair and skin.
  • The hair and clothing details are the most complicated part of the drawing. Take your time and do each detail one by one.

Let’s Draw A Teacher – Step By Step

Step 1: Make a wide U-shape as a starting guide for the teacher’s face. Note that the left tip is slightly higher than the right tip.
Step 2: For the ears, draw two little curves on each tip. Add a little line in the inside for a detail.
Step 3: Now, let’s work on the hair. Follow the arrows above to make different strokes. Make sure it touches the tips of the teacher’s face.
Step 4: Now let’s draw the top part of her hair by making two slightly curved downward strokes on each side. Leave a little space in the middle (as seen). Add two curved strokes as well just below her ears.
Step 5: Draw the collar/neck section with a small U-curve. Connect two short slanted lines downwards.
Step 6: Add two short outward lines on each side of her neck. Note that the one on the right should be placed in the middle of the line you made previously.
Step 7: On each side, draw a not-so-straight line downwards to start forming her body. See image above as guide.
Step 8: Connect both ends with a slightly curved line to mark the waist.
Step 9: Next step is to draw the left collar side of her suit. From the short lines above, make two downward strokes with both ends meeting a the middle point of her body. Leave a little space above the waist section.
Step 10: Now do the same with the right collar section. Extend the two short lines from the shoulder downwards, still a little curved, and finish it just above the tip of the left collar’s end.
Step 11: Draw the little necktie in the middle. Make a little oval shape from the neck then another longer oval shape with a pointy tip.

Don’t forget to add diagonal lines on each side of the small oval (touching the neck) as this is the collar of the teacher’s blouse inside.
Step 12: Add diagonal strokes for the side pockets. Note that they are not very straight.

Make a line from the edge of the suit’s collar down to the waist. Add a circle on the left side for the button.
Step 13: Time to form the teacher’s skirt. Leave a little margin from the edge of the suit when you draw curved lines downwards on each side. Connect the edges with a slightly curved line.
Step 14: Make the left sleeve of her suit. From the shoulder, draw a line downwards and connect it to her hips (with a little slanted line).
Step 15: Add details at the edge of the sleeve by drawing another line above.

Draw the teacher’s hand, too. Just make a big curve, followed by another smaller curve, from the edge of the sleeve to her hips.
Step 16: Time to draw the right arm. It is raised up so follow the arrows to form the arms and elbows.
Step 17: Close the edge by an open round shape (we will use the space for the hands next).
Step 18: Next to draw is the right hand. Make a curve from the sleeve and end it with an inward stroke (for one of the fingers).
Step 19: Draw another finger beside it by making a swirl. It touches the first finger as well as the edge of her sleeve. See image as guide.
Step 20: Make additional strokes to define her hand and fingers. Close the swirl with a C-shape and make a slightly vertical line to complete the hand.
Step 21: Next is making the stick she’s holding. Draw an oval in between her fingers for the handle.
Step 22: Draw two vertical lines with a pointy edge to complete the stick.
Step 23: Let’s go back to her hair to add volume. Let’s work on the left side first.

From the mid point above, draw a small wave-like stroke then extend it downwards, curved, until it touches the bottom curl under her ears.
Step 24: Do the same on the right part of her hair. Draw a huge curve downwards until you reach her hair below her ears, too. Remember not to draw over the stick.
Step 25: Let’s start making her legs. Make a V-shape in the midsection of her skirt.
Step 26: Draw the sides of each leg. Note the slight dent on the knee section.
Step 27: For the feet, draw inward strokes as seen on the image guide above. Note that they are slightly curved, too.
Step 28: Draw two lines on each foot to define the shoe section (as shown above).
Step 29: Next is we go to the face and start drawing her eyes. Make small oval shapes with two white circles on each – one bigger than the other. You can shade the eyes black except for the two small circles inside.
Step 30: Add a little stroke for her nose and wide semi-circle for her happy mouth.
Step 31: Following the contour of her eyes, draw a thick arc. Don’t forget her eyebrows, too, which appears to be part of her hair. See the sample above for reference.
Step 32: Add a pink oval blush on her cheeks, just below the bottom sides of her eyes. You may also color the bottom portion of her mouth with the same shade.
Step 33: Coloring time! You may choose whatever shade you like!
