Printable How To Draw A Mission Bell Drawing Worksheet

This printable drawing lesson and the worksheet below will help the young artist gain confidence in drawing a classic feature found in many scenes. Parents and teachers will be able to use this in class and at home. It can be an extra activity or something that can be sent home for extra practice.

FIRST, A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT. If your picture does not turn out just how you wanted it to do not give up- just keep on drawing. No one is as hard on themselves as a person who has the gift of art. Remember skill and talent are different. You have to keep practicing to get your skill up to the level of your talent. So draw every day and soon you will be making beautiful pictures. Come back often and try some of my other projects; I know you will find some you like.

PROJECT NOTES.
BEGINNING
Start by drawing a large circle for the top of the bell and an oval horizontally underneath. Add a few lines to connect the two to make the basic shape of the bell. Don't for get the clapper- the circle inside the oval.
Draw a larger circle for the arch of the bell wall, and cross bar for the bell to hang from, a few short choppy lines will give the bar a rough wood look, don't forget the shadow underneath. 

After getting the bell and arch established, then take a moment and look things over to make sure it is even and square.

DEVELOPING FORM
Make the stone wall by first drawing very lightly some horizontal lines to serve as a "grid" for the stones to be drawn in. Make sure the light reference lines are straight. Draw each stone slowly and carefully. Leave spaces between the stones, this will look like the mortar holding them together.

DETAILS Make a shadow under the bottom of each stone this will make them look three dimensional.
Shadow in the areas that need it such as the inside of the bell and use a gradual deepening shadow to make the bell look round.

If you are working with color I suggest the stone can be some pale red and orange.  Make the sky beyond the bell a pale blue and the bell itself green.  Erase any leftover marks.
