Free printable How To Draw A Corn Stalk Worksheet

This printable worksheet will be helpful for parents and teachers alike since it will help the young artist gain confidence in drawing.  It uses a few basic lines and simple concepts to create a representative drawing.  This can be used at home, at school, and home-school families will find it helpful.  It can be given as an extra classroom assignment or as an after school project.

FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: Drawing takes practice so if your project does not turn out perfect do not give up, call it a first draft and keep on trying.  Draw every day and soon you will be making beautiful pictures.  Come back often and try some of my other projects.

To print just highlight it and send it to your printer or save to your device to print later. Some people have better luck by saving it to their desktop first and printing from there. If you have problems see the how to print tab above.

BEGINNINGS
Start the stalk with two lines that are a little farther apart at the bottom and almost touching at the top.

Add three or four ovals for the corn.  The ovals are different sizes, the bigger ones are at the bottom and the smallest ones are at the top. Start them half way up.  Draw them one on the right then on the left side a little higher than on the right a little higher.

Mark off lines where each leaf is going to be, they alternate on each side and tilt upward.

DEVELOP FORM
Draw the leaves like long blades of grass that go up and flop down.  The leaves are bigger at the bottom and smaller at the top.  Have some cross in front of others for a realistic three-dimensional effect.  The bottom line of the leaves angels all the way across the stalk

There are flowers at the top they are small rows of circles and flop over.

DETAILS
The corn cob has leaves wrapping around it so draw a line curving across the length of the corn to show this. To draw the open one use two lines for the leaves on each side, (so it is in thirds lengthwise), in the center third draw a checkered grid, then round off the squares and darken the points where the grid lines cross.

SHADING
Use shading to give it roundness.
