Hello and welcome to a fun, easy, ten-step guide to how to draw a strawberry!
Strawberries are delicious, sweet, juicy, bright red berries (although, they can also be blue, white, black, purple, and yellow)! Did you know that strawberries, on average, have 200 seeds? And, did you know that they are 91% water and rich in Vitamin C? That’s a lot of seeds for such a small fruit!
Strawberries are yummy by themselves, but they can also be made into jams, pies, cakes, popsicles, milkshakes and more! Maybe this drawing tutorial will inspire you to try a new strawberry-flavored recipe.
Let’s get started—grab some art materials, and happy drawing!

Step 1 – Draw the first strawberry.
We are actually going to draw a few strawberries in this drawing. Let’s get started with the first one.
On the left side of the page, about halfway up, draw an oval. It should be slightly pointier on the bottom. Make it a little bit askew, too. Refer to the image!
Step 2 – Add another strawberry.
Draw another similar oval shape, but this time on the right side. Draw it so that it looks like it is behind the first strawberry—look at the photo to see how to indicate perspective.
Now we have the main part of the strawberries!
Step 3 – Draw five leaves at the top.
At the top of the first strawberry, draw five leaves at the top. They should be arranged in a circle around a center point. Draw the ones in front bigger, so that they look closer.
The shape of the leaf should be similar to the strawberry—ovaular, but pointier at the bottom—just much smaller. Look at the photo!
Step 4 – Add leaves to the other strawberry!
Next, we’re going to add leaves to the remaining strawberry. So, let’s draw five leaves on it! Draw them similar to the ones in Step 3!
Step 5 – Add two stems to the strawberries.
At the top of each strawberry, add a small stem at the center of all the leaves. They should be small, short, skinny rectangles, as if they just got picked off the vine!
Step 6 – Draw two flowers on the outside.
We’re going to add some decorations to the rest of the drawing. On the right side, draw a flower shape made out of five semicircles.
Do the same thing on the top left corner of the drawing, but make this one a little smaller to add visual variety.
Now, we just need to fill in more details in all of the shapes!
Step 7 – Add detail to the flowers.
Draw two small circles to the middle of each flower!
Step 8 – Add more detail to the flowers.
Let’s finish the flowers now by adding a little bit more detail.
Around the middle circles, add a bunch of small petal shapes—refer to the image for this step! We’ve completed the flowers now.
Step 9 – Add the seeds to the strawberries!
Like we mentioned above, strawberries have a bunch of seeds! So, we need to add seeds to the strawberries. We don’t need to add all 200, but let’s at least add a few!
Draw a bunch of dots throughout both of the berries. Vary the sizes a little bit to add visual variety.
Step 10 – Color in your drawing!
We need to make this strawberry a bright, bold color like berries in real life! Grab some reds, pinks, and greens to color in your strawberries! Have fun with it!
Pin it now, Draw later!
There you go! We hope you had a great time learning some new drawing skills in this step-by-step tutorial!
