Remember those rainy days when we eagerly waited for the government to close schools in North Bangalore or any other part of Bangalore, just so we could avoid the traffic and stay home? Those were the days when we’d craft paper boats or draw umbrellas to pass the time. Now, if our kids want to learn these skills, we want them to become the best artists they can be by providing them with the best tutorials or practice sheets.

That’s why in this blog, we’ve put together a step-by-step guide for drawing umbrellas for kids. And guess what? At the end of the blog, we’ve included a downloadable PDF worksheet for practice, so your little one can master the skill. Without further delay, let’s dive right in and get started!

2. A step-by-step guide to Draw an Umbrella

Step 1: Make a Semi-circle

Take your drawing sheet and a pencil and draw a big semi-circle on it. This will be the top part of the umbrella, also known as the canopy. You can use a compass or trace around a circular object to get that perfect semi-circle. You can check the reference image.

Step 2: Join the ends of the circle

After drawing the semi-circle for the canopy, close its ends by drawing gently sloping curved lines that connect each end, running parallel to the semi-circle’s baseline.

Step 3: Make lines on the top of the umbrella

Now, make a tiny circle on the top. Make Vertical straight lines from the top end of the semi-circle. Make sure that these lines should pass from the boundary on the lower part.

Step 4 : Make the lower portion of Umbrella

To create the lower part of the umbrella, first, locate the center of the semi-circle. From there, draw two parallel straight lines extending downward and connect them at the bottom, forming a thin vertical rectangle. Then, at one end, draw a large J-shape, and at the other end, draw a smaller J-shape. Connect these shapes with a straight line, resembling a hook for hanging clothes.

Step 5: Make a curved line.

Now, you have to make a curved line on the umbrella top. 

Make a curved line just above the outline of the line which is joining the two ends of the semi-circle. Make sure that there should be a little distance between the two lines.

If you are having any confusion you can refer to the picture.

Step 6: Add colors

In the final step, add color to your umbrella drawing. You have the freedom to choose any color scheme you prefer. We’ve used a vibrant combination of red and yellow colors. However, feel free to unleash your creativity by coloring your umbrella with a rainbow of colors.

Final Touches

 After completing your coloring, erase any extra lines you have made while drawing. Outline your drawing using colors to make it look more beautiful.

And at the end, Draw a square-shaped border around the umbrella that you have made.

Additionally, what you can do

  • You can use a black sketch pen after you have completed your drawing using a pencil. By doing this, your drawing will look more attractive.
  • You can also add different colours to your umbrella to make it look more colourful.
  • If you want your umbrella to have a print, draw flowers on it to make it look more attractive.
  • You can show a boy or a girl holding an umbrella in the rain.


Give yourselves a pat on the back because you’ve successfully created your own umbrella! Your drawing looks fantastic. And even if it didn’t turn out exactly as you hoped, don’t be disheartened. Keep a smile on your face because, firstly, you’ve made the umbrella all by yourself, and secondly, it’s your first attempt at it. Practice makes progress, so keep smiling and keep drawing!

If you practice it daily, we assure you that one day it will look better than ours.
