Free Printable How To Draw Worksheet, Draw A Bell Tower

This free printable how to draw a tower worksheet is helpful to draw a tower in a courtyard or village scene. It can be nice as a line drawing as illustrated or as a colorful project. I designed this as a take home handout for my art students.

Parents and teachers will be able to use this in class or at home.
  • It can be an extra activity to fill in the time.
  • It can be part of a homeschool program.
  • It can be a art lesson handout.
  • It can be part of an after school art club.
  • It can be a lesson filler or part of a sub's art lesson plans.
  • It can be given out as a take home activity.

Learning to draw takes time and practice. If your picture does not turn out just the way you had in mind then try again. No one is as hard on themselves as a person who has the gift of art. Frustration shows you have the talent but skill is different and you just need to develop you skill to reach the same level as your talent, so practice and draw every day. Come back to my blog and try my other projects. I am always adding new ones and I am sure you will find some you like.

Begin by drawing lightly so you can erase later on. 

Use a ruler or straight edge to draw the straight lines.

Use shapes like rectangles, triangles, and squares to build the basic shape. 

Use a guideline down the center to keep things even.

The view is at a slight angle so the front and a short "foreshortened" side are both showing.  

Add arched doors and windows.

Add buildings on the side.

Use a guideline for the ground.

Use a grid for the stones. Star with horizontal lines evenly across the front and sides of the building. Then divide the lines with vertical lines. Draw a line around the arches for the supporting stones and divide the double line into sections to look like arch stones. 

Draw the interior of the tower seen through the arches. The tower is open on the other side so you can see through it and light shines in. Draw bushes and background through the windows.

Add texture by adding jagged mountains in the background and scribbly bushes or trees in the foreground.

Use dark areas to give interest.  Put shadows inside and on one side.
