Learning how to draw an umbrella is a fun thing to do on a rainy day, or any day for that matter. And if you have some help drawing one with a view like this, with just a little turn to the side, it becomes such a more interesting drawing!

This tutorial is a bit of a cross between a connect the dots, and a DIY project. My experience is that elementary students need a bit of help in setting up an evenly spaced octagon, but providing the entire shape doesn’t help them think things out. The solution? A template that you can print that has just the eight dots so their umbrella gets off to a good start, and the rest will be up to them. There’s a tutorial below for this solid color version, and another for the fancier pattern version further down on this page. I hope one of them is the perfect support for your students learning how to draw an umbrella!
