How to Draw A Hermit Crab Worksheet

This is an easy to do project that will give the young artist confidence. A few simple lines, some curved and some straight, are all it takes to draw it .

You may print the worksheet and project notes by highlighting them and sending them to your printer, or saving to your device to reference later. If you have problems printing see the how to print tab for helpful suggestions.

FIRST, A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: If your drawing does not turn out the way you hoped do not give up- no one is as critical of their work as much as a true artist!. Learning to draw takes practice, so draw every day, and come back and print another worksheet soon you will be an artist. Try different projects and draw a lot of different stuff, I have a lot of worksheets to choose from so do something different every day and soon you will find what your talent is.

To see more how to draw worksheets like this search the sidebar.

Start the shell as a triangle. Draw a ling across the sections at an angle to give it a twisted look then round off the sections with curving lines.

The crab has an oval face with two thin triangles for the lower half of the face.

The eyes are oval shaped and on fat stalks.

Draw the antennae before you get too much done on the legs. The antennae have a bend by the face.

The legs look like finger shapes at first, draw them lightly until you get them right. There are three on each side. The two in the middle have fat claws. Divide the legs into three rounded segments. Add the rows of bumps lightly. Draw the bumps as little dots or small shapes like the letter "n" or "u."

Go over the best lines until they look good and then erase the rest.

Put sand or rocks on the ground underneath him and a few bubbles floating over him.

The crab can be brown, orange, grey or black.
