The Leaning Tower of Pisa is a beloved symbol of Italy, and covered in many studies about the country.

You could just have students freehand its uniquely slanted architecture, but chances are that a grid that is kind of “preslanted” will allow them to really capture all those amazing layers and arches. That’s why the tutorial you can download below has exactly the grid shown on page 2.
