How To Draw An Arched Door, A Free Printable Worksheet

The drawing worksheet below will help the young artist gain confidence in drawing. This one can look very nice in color.

This arch door might be found in an old castle or an old house in Europe.

There are many different ways to approach a project like this. I offer this worksheet as one method to draw an arched door. I have kept it simple on purpose for the young artist but it could be a beginning point for someone with more advanced skills.

The secret to becoming a good artist is to draw every day, so come back often and see my other projects there are many to choose from and if you draw every day soon everybody will be calling you a great artist.

Good luck.

BEGINNING
Start simple. If you have some round object trace around it to draw the top of the arch of the door. Use straight lines to draw the rectangle of the door sides and the bottom.

DEVELOPING FORM
Draw a second line around what has been drawn so far so it is an outline, but give it room to draw the bricks of the wall in. Divide this space with lines to mark off where the bricks will be. Outline the areas  so they look like bricks with mortar between. them.

Draw a line down the middle to make the two doors.

Draw a line across the top for the top of the door .

Use guidelines to create rows for the bricks in the wall then divide the lines for the bricks. Outline the bricks and erase the guidelines.

Use texture to give the door a weathered wood grain look.

Use guidelines to place the hinges on each side so they are parallel with the hinge on the other side.

These hinges are wrought iron so draw them black and give them curves.

Use guidelines to make the flagstones even and outline the flagstones on the floor.
