Here, we will show you how to draw stairs using our really easy drawing tutorial. Learn how to create 3D staircase art in just six easy-to-follow steps.
Welcome to the lesson on drawing stairs! Today, we will be learning the basics of creating 3D cartoon stairs on paper. But before we begin, let’s discuss a few important aspects of this process. You can also share with friends and learn together how to draw stairs!
Firstly, in order to draw stairs, it is necessary to understand its structure and principles of construction. Stairs consist of several elements: steps, risers, railings, and handrails. Each of these elements has its own shape and size, which must be considered when drawing stairs.
Secondly, when drawing stairs, it is important to consider perspective. If you want to create a 3D effect, you must imagine the stairs in three dimensions and consider its placement in space. For example, if the stairs are on a sloping surface, its steps will have different sizes and placement.
Finally, to create a realistic staircase, you must know how to work with shadows and light. Shadows help create a sense of depth and volume, while light can highlight details on the stairs. For simplification of drawing, this lesson will be easy even for beginners, and it will be an excellent start for you.
Once you have mastered the basic principles of drawing stairs, you can move on to more complex drawing projects. Try drawing stairs with railings and handrails, considering their shape and placement. And don’t forget about perspective and light—they will help you create a realistic 3D effect.
So, friends, let’s start drawing stairs! Be patient and enjoy the process. And remember, practice makes perfect in drawing!

How to Draw Stairs
- Draw the string of the stairs.
Begin by drawing the base part of your stairs—the string of the stairs.

Now you need to draw the general shape of the stairs.
- Draw the treads and risers.
Using straight lines, start drawing the treads and risers. Draw these lines exactly from the corners of the staircase shape.
- Draw the handrail.
Using straight lines, draw the long part of the handrail, then bend the line at the top to draw the top part.
- Draw the balusters.
Now you need to draw the balusters using straight lines as shown in the example.
