Bring a little Paris to your house while your kids learn to draw the Eiffel Tower with this easy tutorial!

Once they have mastered the Eiffel Tower, check out the other "how to draw" tutorials. Let their imagination take them to London, England as they draw Big Ben.

Then they can travel on to Australia as they draw the Sydney Opera House.

Rectangles and Triangles
Sketch the basic shape of the building with two horizontal lines, rectangles, and triangles.

Add different levels to the rectangles using straight lines. Form arches on the triangles and below using curved lines.

Curve Lines
Detail the arches using curved lines that join at the top. Draw a curved line under the lower left-hand arch. Add additional curved lines to the arches on the right-hand side as shown.

Draw straight horizontal lines to two sections of the left-hand rectangle. Sketch an odd-shaped diamond. Add the door with an incomplete rectangle

Ribs and Water
Sketch ribs on the arches with curved lines. Draw squiggles for the ­water line. Detail the building with rectangles, a V-shaped figure, and horizontal lines.

Finish the drawing by adding many straight vertical lines for the wood and arches. Draw diagonal lines inside the arches and windows to show depth.

Your drawing is finished! Even if you don't get it right the first time, keep practicing until you're happy with your drawing.

DCT Mom thoughts

I am a singer, dancer, and actor... an artist in so many ways, but my visual art skills are not my strong suit. But, with these tutorials, I think my kids and I could re-create these iconic structures and have a great time doing it!
