How To Draw The Face Of A Geisha, Free How To Draw Worksheet

This is a nice project for a young artist and it is simple to draw. The results will give pride to any artist. Parents and teachers will be able to us this in many ways.

FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: If your drawing of the geisha does not turn out the way you had hoped it would do not give up, you are learning to draw and your next drawing will be better. The secret to drawing is to draw every day. Come back to this blog every day and try another lesson- soon you will be making beautiful pictures.

To print the worksheet below just highlight it and send it to your printer or save to your device to print later, some printers work better if you first 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 updated files below.

Remember to draw lightly so you can erase later.
The head is an oval shape. The pose is the three quarter view, (where she is turning slightly away) so draw a guideline slightly to the left to help keep things straight. Use guidelines halfway down, and  going across the face to place the eyes. Halfway below that draw another one for the nose and half way to the chin draw another for the mouth. The hair starts out as a three large ovals.

Keep things simple. Draw two arches for the upper eyelid and a slightly curved line for the lower eyelid. The nose is a line going down and curving a little inward at the bottom. The mouth is small. The eyebrows are a thin line.

Outline the flowers and any other ornaments you want to put in the hair before drawing in the hair. There are two chopsticks poking out, there are three strings of paper bells hanging down, and a charm that looks like a comb on the right side. The hair starts high up on the forehead. Remember to leave areas to be highlights- it is good to outline them early on. Use long curving lines starting at the forehead and going up or out. There is a bun at the top and a bun at the side. The highlights will help it to look real.

The dress wraps around the shoulders. Draw two or four lines going down from the shoulders like cloth wrapping across.

NOTE: There is much confusion about the Geisha as who they are and what they do. The geisha is an artist who performs song, dance, music and other art forms. They were to be living expressions of art and beauty
