How To Draw A Gingerbread House for Christmas, Worksheet

This how to draw worksheet will help the young artist create a project to celebrate the Christmas season.

FIRST, A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: Drawing takes practice, so if the project does not turn out just the way you wanted to don't give up. A real artist is hardest on themselves. Keep on drawing and soon you will be making beautiful pictures. Come back and try some of my other projects.

BEGINNINGS
Keep it simple at first and draw a light outline of the project you want to draw. The house is seen from the angle of the corner, this makes it look more interesting than just the front. The horizontal lines of the roof, windows door, and bottom of the house tilt a little going toward each other slightly as if they continued away to a place where they touch.

DEVELOPMENT
Use guidelines to outline the windows and the door so they are all even. Lightly draw a checker grid for the shingles on the roof so that when you draw the round shingles they go in straight rows. Roughly sketch in the door, the walkway and the chimney.

FINISHING TOUCHES
Draw shutters next to the windows and decorate them with gumdrops. Outline the house with gumdrops. Make the path out of peppermint suckers and then draw candy canes beside the path. Draw lollipops for a garden and gummy bells for bushes.

Last add a background so the house will have a world of its own.
