Great Family Project! Grid drawing with kids- it's so fun to see how excited they get with their results. From Artchoo! (Jeanette Nyberg)
Great intro lesson to drawing with grids ! It can help to label letters on top (A,B,C...) and numbers on the side(1,2,3) and have them work block per block (example "let us all draw what is in block C3"). If students are having a hard time, have them use scrap paper to "block" areas of image and look at only one section at a time when drawing.
Do your students need a little work with value before they embark on a shaded drawing? Value Grids are an effective tool to give them some practice.
