How To Draw A Flamingo Worksheet and Lesson

How to draw a flamingo is an easy printable drawing lesson that will give the young artist confidence. A few simple lines, some curved and some straight, are all it takes to draw a beautiful flamingo.

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 trouble printing see the how to print tab above.

FIRST, A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: If your drawing of a flamingo 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.

You may want to print the project notes below, too.

Start drawing lightly so you can erase later. Begin with the arch of the back. Make the arch slope outward toward the tail. The back or top line of the neck is just as long as the back and may curve like an "S." Use a circle to get the size and shape of the head. The line of the bottom of the neck curves all the way down and continues to the tail.

The beak is big. Draw a rectangle on the front of the head and then a triangle going down.

The legs are as long as the body. They start halfway on the body and halfway down is the knees.

After you have the basic outline of the body then add the details.

The eye is slightly forward on the head; it is small and has a dot in the middle.

The beak is black at the triangle part. There is a line from the top bend of the beak to the bottom of the eye.

The feathers sweep down and back on the body. There is a dark line of feathers low on the body.

The tail feathers droop down at the end.

The feet are webbed, with three toes.
