100+ Fun Creative Drawing Prompts (with Printable)

Drawing is a great way to relax and practice our creative skills.

However, sometimes we can simply run out of ideas to draw.

Here is a list of various drawing prompts to help you get back to drawing, and inspire you to draw some random things you wouldn’t have thought about drawing before.

Drawing from a random word is a great way I practice my own creativity.

I also like to combine random words or things into one drawing to create something a little different. Feel free to do this if you’d like, whether it’s another word from a prompt or just a random one that pops up in your head.

I hope these prompts help you to expand your drawing ideas!

I tried to include different prompts, from more simple ones to more creatively unique ones that may be more challenging.

I hope you find one that works for what you are in the mood for 🙂

I have also included a printable version (pdf) of these lists at the bottom of the blog post. Hope this helps!
