Gridding a Photo for Drawing Using an X Grid – Middle School Art – High School


Product Description

This art resource shows students how to grid a photograph to use as a drawing reference for any grid drawing project. It can be used as part of your demonstration for any drawing assignment using the grid method. It demonstrates how to create the grid right in Google Slides. It is great for distance learning or uses in the classroom. It shows students how to crop and grid any photo to a 4:5 orientation. This will create a drawing scaled up to 8:10, 12:15, or 16:20. One of the most challenging things about grid drawing is getting students to draw the grid accurately and to match the ratio of the grid on their drawing paper. This method makes it super simple and students can watch the video demonstration, refer to the instructional handout, or see the slide show from any device. This is great for when you can’t be there to help everyone at once and alleviates common gridding mistakes. The scannable QR code makes digital viewing possible even if you do not load the assignment to a digital platform.
