How to Draw A 3D Cross (Christian) Worksheet

How to Draw a 3D Cross is a free worksheet that you can print by highlighting it and sending to your printer or saving to your device and printing later.

Parents, teachers and home school families will find many ways to use this worksheet in class or as a take home. It presents a practical illustration on the perspective of a basic shape.

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 3D Cross Free Worksheet.


The 3D is seeing not only the front of the object but turning it to see the side angle also.

I start with a ruler. Some people do not think that an artist needs a ruler but a ruler is a tool and every craftsman uses tools. Use a ruler to draw the lines straight and start with a light pencil to draw lightly since you will need to erase some of the lines.

This project requires attention to keeping lines parallel to make it look good. Draw two parallel lines going up and down for the shaft of the cross and then two parallel lines going across for the crossbeam. It is OK if they cross over each other since you are still drawing lightly and will be erasing later. Draw lines to close off the ends and the top and bottom. This should be a basic flat cross.

Use the ruler to measure both sides of the cross piece to make sure it is not lopsided.

To begin the side view that makes the 3D effect use the ruler to draw five diagonal lines from the top corners going down at an angle all going the same way. These angle lines are one at the very top of the shaft, one at the top of the cross piece, and three under the cross piece. Last draw the lines the make the back side edges these will start at the short angle lines.

Many people add the sign on the top, or the nails, or the crown of thorns Some add the shroud draped over the crossbeam. Put in a background with some long wavy lines for the near hills and some choppy lines for the distant mountains.
