I like to give any assignment that will give people who struggle
success. I have often done a grid assignment where I take a large
photo from a magazine(black & white) and draw the grids, then cut
into squares (sometimes 4 grids--sometimes only 1) I give to the
kids when we're discussing value and I have them enlarge to about
6"squares per each 1" square they receive. The object is to
accurately render the value patterns. Often they can't even make
out what their piece is. When we're finished we assemble the picture
into one giant shaded drawing and the results are usually wonderful.
Since I have all 8th graders we usually have several pictures so it's
really important to have some kind of code on the backs of the little
grid pieces --it's a challenge to put them together. We use ebony
pencil. Sid
