Grid Drawing- Use a Grid to Draw

Sometimes when we, as artists, are creating drawings and paintings, the need arises for accuracy. The grid technique is a great "tried and true" method to create accurate drawings from photos.

I have always been a teacher who gets ridiculously enthused about what students are capable of creating (I am an Art teacher after all), but apart from letters home, praise in lessons for genuine hard work and creativity and displaying of work in it’s most traditional form, I don’t exactly push the boat out.

The passion which students have to develop, improve, to search for greatness can be seen as an intrinsic quality. If you looked around your class, you probably only think this quality relates to some of the students you teach. A fixed mindset; where people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. Imagine seeing this at your local bus stop.. Now.. So.
