Hospitals are one of the most important institutions that we have in modern society.
Sickness and injuries are unfortunately an integral part of human life, but luckily we have hospitals with skilled doctors, nurses, surgeons and other practitioners to help.
Hospitals can come in many shapes, sizes and designs, but no matter what form they take they are equally important. Learning how to draw a hospital is a great way to honor this vital institution.
This may seem like it would be hard to do, but this tutorial is here to show you that it doesn’t have to be!
We hope that you enjoy this great step-by-step guide on how to draw a hospital that we have made for you.
How to Draw A Hospital – Let’s Get Started!
To get this guide on how to draw a hospital started, we will begin with the front of the building. In doing this, the first thing we will draw will not be a part of the hospital itself!
Instead, we will be drawing an ambulance, as this vehicle is very important to the operation of the hospital.
First, you may want to grab a ruler, as it will make drawing not only the ambulance but also the rest of the hospital much easier.
For the ambulance, start with two circles with smaller circles inside each one. Then, use your ruler to draw the square shape of the ambulance.
Don’t forget to add a blocky cross and a siren to the top! Finish off this step by drawing some straight, horizontal lines for the base of the hospital and also add a small pot plant near the left-hand side.
Step 2 – Next, draw some more of the hospital in this step
Continuing on with this hospital drawing, you can now start adding some more shapes and details. First, you can draw another pot plant near to the other one that you drew.
The next thing that we will be adding is two large, square shapes for the front of the hospital. The top lines of these squares will also extend a bit further than the sides of them.
The reference image will show you what we mean by this!
Finally for this step, you can draw a nice tree on the right-hand side of the scene, and then we can move on to step 3.
Step 3 – Now add some more of the building
It may look like we are adding a lot in this step of our guide on how to draw a hospital, and while that is true it won’t be as complicated as it looks!
For this part, your ruler and the reference image will definitely be your most useful tools.
Using the reference image to help you, we will be adding some square and rectangle shapes onto the ones that you have started already. Try to position them in the same ways that we did for ours, if you can.
Finally, draw a ridge on top for the roof of the hospital, and then we can proceed.
Step 4 – Draw some more details for the front of the hospital
Your hospital drawing is really taking shape now! As we continue, we will be drawing even more shapes using your ruler.
As shown in our reference image, you can start drawing some thin rectangular shapes onto the left-hand side of the hospital.
Then, we will be drawing a large rectangular shape onto the central section of the hospital. This shape will also have some lines drawn across it.
Finally, finish off by drawing some small squares and rectangles onto the right-hand side of the hospital, and then add some puffy clouds above it.
Then we will be ready for some final touches in the next one.
Step 5 – Add the final touches for your hospital drawing
Our fifth step of this guide on how to draw a hospital will see you adding the final elements and touches.
First, we will be drawing a helicopter using some rounded and straight lines on the top left side of the hospital.
The other details will be composed of some more straight lines onto the shapes of the hospital, and we shall also add another thick gross inside of a circle on the front of the hospital.
Be sure to also add any other small extra details or elements that you may want for this image! What can you think of to add to the picture?
Step 6 – Finish off your hospital drawing with some color
Now it’s time to finish off your hospital drawing with some color! In our reference image, we showed you one way that you could color this picture in.
We went with some cooler blues and greens for the majority of the hospital facade, but we also incorporated some greys for some parts.
For a splash of warmer colors, we also used some reds for the medical crosses and the helicopter on the roof.
These are the colors we went for, but while you could use similar shades you can also use some unique color choices of your own!
What colors, art tools and mediums do you think would best suit your amazing hospital drawing? We can’t wait to see what you go for!
Here’s how you can make your hospital drawing even better…
These tips we have for your hospital drawing are just what the doctor ordered!
Hospitals come in many different designs, and the one we created for this hospital drawing is one possible example. You could change the design to create your very own unique hospital!
You may have a hospital near you that has a cool design to it, and you could use that to help you alter this one. A brand new design could be created by changing just a few small details, so you can have lots of fun experimenting.
For this drawing of a hospital, we added a few vehicles such as a chopper and an ambulance. You could make the scene even busier by adding some more activity!
Maybe there could be another ambulance or there could be people standing outside the entrance. Those are just two ideas, but you could add any other features that could make this look busier.
What are some ideas you have for how you could make this hospital scene more involved?
Once you have finished this hospital sketch, there are a few other aspects you can customize. One of the ways you could do this would be by creating different weather for the scene.
There could be some big clouds above the hospital with rain pouring down, or it could even be snowing. You might even want to make the scene even brighter for a more optimistic feel.
What kind of day do you think it could be at the hospital?
We went with a nice muted color scheme for the hospital drawing we created in this guide. This color scheme looks great, but you could also go with any other colors you like!
Perhaps you would like a brighter hospital, or you could go in a different direction and make the colors darker. You could also play around with the art mediums you use to achieve your colors.
This is another top where you could potentially look at real hospitals for inspiration!
