My Statue of Liberty drawing lesson uses a grid method, which is a great technique for older students to learn to use.
I have seen lots of students make some amazing drawings when they have clear lines to refer to (as opposed to a photo) and a grid to give them structure. My PDF download includes the pages shown: a finished sample, a line drawing to refer to, a grid page to draw on, and a coloring page for extra fun.

1. Students refer to the line drawing sample to create their own drawing in pencil on the empty grid page.
2. The drawing is traced with a black marker.
3. The statue is colored as shown on the finished sample.
