Here is the original image that was used for this particular drawing activity. Be sure students find a very simple object so the line types become the star of the show once they draw in the grid.
Varied Applications for this lesson:
•With new vocabulary, using the grid helps students visually organize information; not to mention it looks cool.
•Apply the grid model to learning the elements and principles of design, media exploration or art history.
•Use the grid for formative assessments in drawing. Every month complete a drawing in one box. Outline drawing with black marker and date.
