Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Cardinal Tutorial Video and Cardinal Coloring Pages. The bright red color against a snowy blue sky makes a very pretty work of art in all kinds of media.

Learning to draw a cardinal bird is a great winter project that will keep you busy and respect the season. It also has some built-in color appeal. They always make a charming winter work of art when set against a snowy sky because of their simple shape, distinctive black face, and pointy head. There are three projects featuring cardinal birds on this page: two of them are drawings, and the third one is a watercolor resist. The two cardinals below will concentrate on two additional drawing positions, and the painting tutorial that explains the painting project above will explain the crayon and watercolors used. You could use oil pastels, markers, or crayons to color them, depending on what would be most appropriate for your classroom. If you’re undecided, go with the media that has the brightest red hue. If you want this art teacher’s opinion, the most important thing is that it’s all about having a bright red bird. Whenever my school held its yearly art fundraiser around the holidays, getting the kids to sketch, color, or paint a cardinal seemed to always make the parents happy. Given the diversity of our student body, it always seemed like a good idea to introduce a project with a nature theme.
