Did you know there are 206 bones in the adult human body?
If you’re studying human anatomy, either as an artist or for a high school or college course, you may not need to know all of these bones. You will, however, probably need to know some of the basic human bones, such as the femur, the radius, and the sternum.
If you need to review the human skeleton for an upcoming test or quiz, this page provides several free human skeleton diagrams to help you study.
There are 6 worksheets to choose from. The first two show the labeled human skeleton. One is in color, and the other is in black and white. Finally, the last set of printables show a blank human skeleton. This sheet is best for artists looking for a reference image.
