The free drawing worksheet guides the young artist in a popular subject. It is simple and inspires the young artist while giving just enough challenge.

This worksheet can be given as a classroom assignment or sent as a take home project.

FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: Learning to draw takes practice and time, so if the project does not turn out perfect do not give up and keep on drawing in a short time you will be making beautiful pictures. I have a lot of projects come back often and try a few more.

How To Draw A Robin's Nest Worksheet
To print the worksheet just highlight it and send it to your printer or save to your device to print later. If you have problems see the how to print above for some suggestions.


Start with a lose sketch where you use basic shapes to work out the design. The nest is shaped like a bowl with rounded edges, so draw an oval with another oval inside and almost touching the top edge. The robin is shaped like a teardrop upside down with a circle for the head at the top. The tail is like a long triangle.

Since robins lay up to four eggs draw one or two ovals for the eggs.
The hatched chick is a circle for a body with triangles on the sides for the wings.
The chick head is turned up and all you see is the beak that is shaped like a triangle.
Draw leaves that are heart shaped or almond shaped below the nest and behind the nest.
Add a tree trunk, it is drawn as parallel lines wide apart below the nest and narrow together above the nest.

The nest is textured with long lines going around it. Make the lines thicker and darker for the shadow underneath and inside bottom of the nest. These lines should follow the curve of the nest.
The robin has two long feathers on the wing. The wing on the far side sticks out a little at the back.
The tail has two long feathers.
Give the tree trunk texture of bark by using short choppy lines.

Things that are behind other things could be shaded darker to make the foreground stand out.
The robin's head is black, the wing and tail is gray and the chest is orange-red.
The egg is blue.
The chick is brown and gray.

The free drawing and the project notes may be printed by highlighting it and sending it to your printer or saving to your device for printing later.
