How to Draw a Parrot Worksheet for Young Artist

This free printable  drawing worksheet, is a simple drawing project that will help give the young artist confidence in drawing. Parrots are cool. They are not hard to draw. This parrot is looking back over his shoulder at you, it is harder than a straight side view but more interesting and will prove what a good artist you are.

FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: If your drawings do not turn out the way you hoped do not give up, learning to draw takes practice like everything else, so draw every day and come back often to try other projects. Soon you will be making beautiful pictures.

This may be printed by saving to your device and sending to your printer or saving to print later. Some printers work better if you drag the image to the desktop and print from there. If you have problems see the how to print tab above for some suggestions or try one of the links below for alternate image files that may work better.

Start the drawing with two circles one for the body and one for the head.
Then add a smaller circle for the beak and one for the feet.
Draw two long lines for the tail feathers make them a little longer than the body.
Connect the circles to make the neck and shoulder and erase the extra lines.
Draw a squiggly line to divide the top of the beak from the bottom.
The bottom of the beak is a smaller half circle.
The wing feathers form a long skinny “W” across his back.
A few lines down the tail will make the three or four feathers, round off the feathers at the ends.
The face has a white cheek and the eye is a dot at the top of the cheek area.
Color the parrot red with a yellow stripe in the middle and a blue stripe at the bottom of the wings. Give him a red tail and head but remember his cheek is white.
My illustration was drawn with colored pencils, I used a photo from a book to get the colors right. I only spent a few minutes on it but if you take your time you can do a better job. Good luck.
