Fun approach Jackie to the weave drawing! If you would
like to share an image of your student's work - send
it my way ( Here is the latest
image I have from Ken - a double self portrait. It is
awesome. I don't know if they used two digital images
- but that would work (scroll down):

Scroll down to see the portrait. The secret here to
the "light" lines is again transfering to the good
paper using graphite (or Seral paper) - only light
lines transfer. Of course - this unit is an advanced
project done after students learn the smudge
technigues and so forth.

One year, I wanted to do Ken's weave drawing with my
8th grade heroes unit - but I chickened out and did an
easier project. I'll always wonder if my kiddles could
have done it.

On a side note...A while back someone sent me a link
to grid transfer paper. You can order it already
gridded with graphite on the back. Here is the site:
I never posted it because it isn't a product I would
have used. The link is on Art Stores:
I asked the gal who sent it to me to post it but she
never did.
