Product Description

Your students will surprise themselves when they draw the simple squares while reassembling them to complete the image.

As a right-brained drawing technique, mystery grids are particularly suited to addressing left-mode issues. The original image is intentionally scrambled to deny the left-brain access and facilitate a shift to a more beneficial mode of mental processing.

Watch a mystery grid drawing demo.

The grid drawing technique is a time-tested method of drawing used historically by the likes of Leonardo DaVinci and Albrecht Dürer. In traditional grid drawing, an artist constructs a grid over their source image and a proportionately identical one on their target surface. This serves three purposes: (1) A complex image is reduced to a series of simplified parts. (2) The grid itself serves to keep the drawing in correct proportion by using coordinates to properly locate aspects of the image. (3) Finally, when one truly focuses on one square at a time, the left-brain's interpretation of the overall subject matter is less likely to interfere with the right-brain's execution of the task.
