Free Printable How To Draw A Menorah Worksheet

Free drawing worksheet for how to draw a Menorah.

This free printable how to draw a menorah worksheet will be helpful for the young artist to draw a nice picture of a menorah.  The menorah is a simple project but like many simple projects, they are harder than they look, this means it requires a little extra planning and time given to organizing the drawing at the beginning so it will look good when you are done.

FIRST, A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT:
If your drawings do not turn out the way you hoped they would do not give up. Frustration is proof that you have the gift of art. You just need to get your skill level up the level of your talent. Draw every day and soon you will be making beautiful pictures that you will be proud of.

HOW TO PRINT THE FREE WORKSHEET
  • With some printers, you can just highlight it and send it to your printer.
  • Some printers work better if you copy and paste the image into a Word Document then print as you would normally. (If you get a small image just adjust the margins from the page layout in the toolbar, then drag the image to enlarge it.)
  • Some printers work better if you first drag the image to your desktop and print from there.
If you have problems printing see the "HOW TO PRINT" tab above or try one of the updated links below that should print better.

These how to draw worksheets are free to print but your small gift will help me keep this blog going.

PRINTABLE NOTES

Begin with some guidelines so everything will be straight. This is a very important step.
Draw a line going up and down for the shaft of the candelabra this is just a guideline. Draw a straight line across the top where the arms will end this will help make all the arms come to the same level and not look crooked. Mark where the arms will end and where they will come out of the shaft.

Draw a line for each of the arms from each side to the top guideline. They should curve gently in a "U".  At the top guideline draw a large letter "U"s for the little bowls where the flame or candle will come out of. use the guideline so they are even. Draw circles below each cup keep it between the guidelines. Draw triangles below the circles, keep them even with the guideline.

Draw circle where the arms connect to the shaft. Go around the lines of the shaft and the arms to give them thickness.

The Star is done with two triangles, one over the other. Draw the triangles then go around them to make it thick.

Use basic shapes for the base like triangles and rectangles.

Add candles or flames each day.
