I made these as well a few years back and you used them once. Did the
hand drawing exercise from the Edward's book. Besides using them as
straight viewfinders for observation (which I might do), how do you
guys use them?
While these are definitely not as long-lasting as the plexi idea, I use
ones I made using some overhead transparency frames that were in my
school's supply room; I don't think anyone had a use for them, but I
did! They're made from poster-board weight white cardboard, they have
about a 1.5" frame all around, with rounded corners and an opening big
enough to tape an overhead transparency into. I just printed out a
sheet with the "quadrants" on it, then photocopied it onto transparency
sheets, then taped them into the frames. So far, I've used my original
set of them with 5 classes, and they're holding up ok.

I use Plexiglas, 8 x 10, divided into quadrants with Sharpie. Lasts
forever; relatively cheap, much more stable to make those vis-a-vis

I am working on making lessons from the "Drawing on the Right Side of
the Brain" book, and have gotten to the Plastic Picture Plane part.
What do you all do about that? Do you make them from scratch? I know I
made some a few years ago at my previous school, but I don't hardly
have that kind of time anymore to make enough for 32 students. Before I
made cardboard frames and taped in overhead projector sheets?
