Portrait Gridded Art Cards are high-resolution images of people of different ethnicities.  There are 10 in total (5 female, 5 male) and each image is overlaid with a grid of 16 squares.  Print and laminate these appealing images for your students to draw, paint or respond to creatively in other ways.  I created these for myself as an extension activity for early finishers.

Also included in the download is a page with a square printed on it with tiny marks around the edge so your students can draw a grid with no measuring.

There are more gridded art cards and grid drawings on The Arty Teacher website, and of course lots of portrait art lessons.

Materials required: drawing papersketching pencils or if your students have a pencil consider supplying a 2B sketching pencil #Ad

Sarah Crowther – The Arty Teacher

I set up The Arty Teacher because I have a passion for my subject that I want to share with other art teachers around the world.

I have been a high school art teacher for over 20 years, so I understand what it’s like to be in front of a class of students, often with very different abilities and attitudes.

I wanted to develop resources that would help teachers to bring out the best in every student in every class. I also wanted to free-up staff from time-consuming lesson preparation to let them focus instead on delivering exciting, motivating, dynamic lessons, supported by excellent resources.
