key for anyone in the art room is to realize that a lot of art can
be done well if you learn some basic steps. In this activity,
grids are used to reproduce pictures they found in magazines.
If kids were simply asked to draw the picture, it could have been
too overwhelming. However, when asked to draw it just one
small square at a time, it becomes a manageable task.
The drawings are surprisingly accurate.
I must admit
that I've had more success with this activity with Middle School
and High School Students. However, it is possible to successfully
do this with younger students if you have a simple design for them
