How To Draw A California Golden Poppy Flower. Free Drawing Worksheet

The free worksheet at the bottom of this post and the project notes below may be printed by highlighting them and sending to your printer or saving to your device to print later.

Start by drawing lightly so you can erase later.

The poppy is a cup shaped flower with four petals. Start by drawing two ovals on the paper, one will be slightly behind the other. Mark the center in the middle of each.

Begin to define the four petals by dividing the circles into sections, use sweeping "U" shaped curving lines, do not worry about being even. One petal on top looks like a Chinese fan. The petals on the sides look like curved lines. The petal on the bottom looks like a ballerina's dress.

The edges of the petals are wavy. In the middle are little fingers that come up draw them at the center circle.

The stems are not straight. The leaves look like groups of feathers pointing up.

How to Draw A Chinese Sampan River Boat. Free Drawing Worksheet

The free drawing worksheet at the bottom of this post and the project notes below may be copied by highlighting them and sending to your printer or saving to print later.

Start drawing lightly so you can erase later. Don't worry if the lines are not straight- in real life these boats get beaten up and a lot of the parts get bent and crooked.

BODY OF BOAT
The Body of the boat is drawn with some straight lines, one for the top and one for the bottom. The front is tilted out at the top and has two lines for the prow. The prow sticks up higher than the side of the boat. The back is like a  bent rectangle

SAIL
Not all sampans have sails but I think the bamboo pole sales look cool, so I put one on our drawing. It is just straight lines. Two go up and down for the mast they touch at the top and are wider at the bottom. There are six or seven lines going across. Do them in pairs so you have a top and bottom of each cross spar. Connect the ends for the cloth.

PUNTER MAN
The river man is small, so don't try to give too much detail. Start with a stick figure that has a triangle for a chest and elbows in the arms. Put the punt pole in his hands that way you get the position of the hands and arms right. The hands are like squares. Next draw the body around the stick figure. Last draw the clothing. Give him black pants.

DETAILS
Draw circles for tires on the sides of the boat. Draw an eye at the front of the boat. Add ropes and boxes. The house on the boat is another rectangle with an arch at the end. Use lines to show the bamboo poles inside.

If the boat is light make the water dark. if the boat is dark make the water light. Add mountains and trees on the edge of the river for a background.

How To Draw An Egret Bird, Free Worksheet

The free worksheet at the bottom of this post and the project notes below may be printed by highlighting them and sending them to your printer or saving and printing later.

Parents, teachers, and home school families will find many ways to use this project to help give the young artist confidence.

BEGINNINGS
The body of the egret is a large oval with smaller oval below it. Draw this first step lightly so you can erase later. The neck is like a large letter "S," use two lines for this so you have a back and a front. The head is like a long triangle beside an oval.

DEVELOP FORM
The large body oval is going to be the wing. There are some feathers at the bottom, draw them with curved lines. Erase the top line of the oval and darken the other parts. The belly is covered with long soft feathers, draw them as short  bent lines.  The front of the neck has some long soft feathers so draw them as curved lines too,

DETAILS
The eye is a circle with a white dot in the middle. The beak has a line going across it to divide the top from the bottom. The back has some shadow and there is a shadow going down the center of the back where the two wings meet. The legs point a little backward at the knee.  It is easiest to hide the feet in water or tall grass.  The far leg is darker since it is in shadow.

How To Draw A Feather, Free Worksheet

The free how to draw worksheet at the bottom of this post and the project notes below may be printed by highlighting them and sending them to your printer or saving to your device and printing later.

This worksheet will be helpful to give the young artist confidence in how to draw a feather. Parents, teachers and home-school families will find ways to use it in classroom or as a take home assignment for the students.

FIRST
Start with the line down the middle that makes the quill and shaft, so then you can use it as a reference for the everything that follows. Draw the middle line as two lines so you have a top and a bottom. The line on the bottom will be a little thicker to show the shadow.

SECOND
The shape of this feather is oval, though some are triangle. Lightly outline the feather as an oval. Use two lines to draw the oval it will be more even.

THIRD
The feather has barbs, draw them as lines coming off of the middle line (shaft), and going to the edge, that is the outside oval we drew in the second step. Sometimes there are gaps in the barbs so draw the gaps early on, that way you are ready when you shadow it in.

There are downy barbs at the base of the feather they go wild, so draw them every way almost like a scribble.

FOURTH
Use shadow technique to show the connection of the barbs to the shaft this is done with short lines starting at the shaft going outward to the edge. Lastly draw shot lines going from the edge inward toward the shaft. Leave spaces for interest. Use longer and darker lines on the bottom to give the shadow effect.

How to Draw A 3D Cross (Christian) Worksheet

How to Draw a 3D Cross is a free worksheet that you can print by highlighting it and sending to your printer or saving to your device and printing later.

Parents, teachers and home school families will find many ways to use this worksheet in class or as a take home. It presents a practical illustration on perspective of a basic shape.

The 3D is seeing not only the front of the object but turning it to see the side angle also.

BEGINNINGS
I start with a ruler. Some people do not think that an artist needs a ruler but a ruler is a tool and every craftsman uses tools. Use a ruler to draw the lines straight and start with a light pencil to draw lightly since you will need to erase some of the lines.


DEVELOP FORM
This project requires attention to keeping lines parallel to make it look good. Draw two parallel lines going up and down for the shaft of the cross and then two parallel lines going across for the crossbeam. It is OK if they cross over each other, since you are still drawing lightly and will be erasing later. Draw lines to close off the ends and the top and bottom. This should be a basic flat cross.

Use the ruler to measure both sides of the cross piece to make sure it is not lopsided.

THE SIDE VIEW
To begin the side view that makes the 3D effect use the ruler to draw five diagonal lines from the top corners going down at an angle all going the same way. These angle lines are one at the very top of the shaft, one at the top of the cross piece, and three under the cross piece. Last draw the lines the make the back side edges these will start at the short angle lines.

DETAILS
Many people add the sign on the top, or the nails, or the crown of thorns Some add the shroud draped over the crossbeam. Put in a background with some long wavy lines for the near hills and some choppy lines for the distant mountains.
