How To Draw An Egret Bird, Free Worksheet

The free how to draw an egret bird worksheet below and the project notes below will help give the young artist confidence in drawing.

This project can be used by parents, teachers, and homeschool families in many ways.

  • It could be an art lesson by itself.
  • It could be an extra time activity.
  • It could be used as a take hope project.
  • It could be part of a homeschool art class.
  • It could be used in an afterschool homework club.
  • Parents can print this and others to take on trips to entertain kids when they are bored.
  • Use this and others as an alternative to watching TV or Video games.

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.


  • On some printers, you can just click on the image and choose print from the list. 
  • On others, you may need to copy and paste the image into a Word Doc and then print the Word Document as you would normally, you may need to choose "edge to edge" printing or adjust margins in the toolbar.
  • With some printers, you may find it best to click on the image and drag it to your desktop and print from there as normal.

The body of the egret is a large oval with smaller oval below it. Draw this first step lightly so you can erase later. The neck is like a large letter "S," use two lines for this so you have a back and a front. The head is like a long triangle beside an oval.

The large body oval is going to be the wing. There are some feathers at the bottom, draw them with curved lines. Erase the top line of the oval and darken the other parts. The belly is covered with long soft feathers, draw them as short bent lines.  The front of the neck has some long soft feathers so draw them as curved lines too,

The eye is a circle with a white dot in the middle. The beak has a line going across it to divide the top from the bottom. The back has some shadow and there is a shadow going down the center of the back where the two wings meet. The legs point a little backward at the knee.  It is easiest to hide the feet in the water or tall grass.  The far leg is darker since it is in shadow.
