Halloween Drawing Ideas: Easy, Fun Cartoons

Looking for some easy, cute Halloween drawing ideas for all ages to go with our set of holiday drawings and activities? You’ve come to the right place for October 31 festivities!

My name is Lillie, and I’m an artist and teacher who is psyched to show you how to sketch everything from a cute bat drawing to a cartoon of a jolly orange pumpkin drawing that can be either spooky or festively autumnal. All lessons here are hand-illustrated by me, with time-lapse videos added, so you can see the full art process.

Ready to dive into the list of Halloween art activities? Before we do, a quick reminder: one of the most important benefits of drawing is that it builds confidence and creativity. This means that you should take all of my “instructions” loosely.

In other words, if you want to do parts of the illustration differently than my suggestions, go right ahead. Art is important because it is about CHOICE and FREEDOM. Now let’s see the list of Halloween art ideas!

I am particularly partial to the witch hat drawing tutorial, but I find the spider web drawing extremely relaxing to do when I’m stressed. Funny how making something spooky can calm you down!
