Below are 2 examples of the "grid self-portrait" project that we do in Beginning Drawing each semester.  Students put a "grid" over a photograph of themselves and then "transfer" the image, square by square, to a larger piece of paper with a "distorted grid."  Each square is rendered in graphite showing the full range of values of the original photo.  Students gain experience in using graphite (pencil) in a refined and disciplined manner.   All of the drawings below are18x24" on white sulfite drawing paper, rendered in graphite.  (My apologies to the artists for the poor quality of the photos....
