> How did you do your woven paintings? Were they not cut apart?

these are drawings using graphite and / or colored pencil. Two pictures are
cut into 1" strips and woven together. These are then taped together and the
students can remove squares to reveal more sections for one picture the see
it better. They use a bigger piece of paper to make a larger square, sketch
it out on newsprint and then transfer to good drawing paper. The drawing is
started after many drawing techniques are discussed and practiced and the
drawing takes about 2 weeks. This is a long project but the results are good
and the kids learn a lot about drawing techniques, like smudge shading cotton
balls, q-tips tortillons, etc.
