It did a great job of helping them improve!” – Art Teacher,  Rachel K.

Need an Easy to Follow One Day Art Lesson or Emergency Sub Plan?

These mystery scramble beginner drawing worksheets are easy to follow for substitute teachers or self-directed learning when the art teacher is unavailable.

They are great as a sub-plan for any middle school or high school class, as they encourage students to use their right brain to draw the broken-down elements instead of relying on their left brain to make associations and draw symbolic representations of what they see.


They learn how to break complex images and patterns into smaller, more straightforward, manageable shapes and learn to draw what they see, not what they think they see. They develop patience and an understanding of different line qualities.


The puzzle format makes it fun and challenges them to create an organized process for marking off completed boxes and finding the next one to draw.

All of my lessons can be shared with your students through Google Classroom or any digital platform and are formatted to work for distance learning or in the classroom. You can find more ready-to-go, easy-to-follow, time-saving art lessons in my RESOURCE SHOP.
