If you are working on a school project or an environmental campaign, you may be wondering how to draw air pollution.
This easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial can help you illustrate air pollution as well as four of its main sources.
Scroll down for a downloadable PDF of this tutorial.
What are those four sources? As you can see in the picture, they include:
- Coal-fueled power plants (the large towers)
- By-products of manufacturing or chemical production (the building and striped towers)
- Burning items that release hazardous substances (the fire drawing guide)
- Vehicle emissions (the car and truck)
You can also see the smoke coming from each of these sources.
Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Air Pollution
How to Draw a Great Looking Air Pollution for Kids, Beginners, and Adults - Step 1
1. Begin by drawing a semi truck outline. Draw a rectangle with a line across the bottom. This is the trailer.
Draw two circles within circles overlapping the bottom of the trailer, erasing as necessary. These are the wheels. Draw another wheel in front of the trailer. From it, extend two lines and double them back upon themselves. Connect them with a curved line, forming the cab of the truck.
Enclose a rounded rectangle on the cab to form the windshield. Connect the cab to the trailer using two short lines.

6. Draw a narrow rectangle on a diagonal slant above the guard rail. This is the roof of the factory building. Connect the roof to the road using straight lines, enclosing the walls of the building. Draw square windows on the side of the building.
From the roof, draw tall, narrow trapezoids and band them with straight lines. These are the factory's smokestacks.
