Why limit yourself to one when four fall drawing ideas will look even better? Especially if you place them in a grid, so each one has just the right proportion box to fill.
There are a couple of ways to encourage students to fill their entire paper when drawing. It’s not the end of the world when they don’t, but every once in a while, like if you want to make a special display or you need art for a fundraiser, you might want to set them up to have a large creation by the time they are done.
One option, that I often refer to, is to have drawings that must touch the sides of the paper, and the other, as in this case, is to have them work with a preformatted grid.
In an ideal world, if they were old enough, you could have them create their own grid. But for the purposes of getting everyone off to a good start, and working on their actual drawings as soon as possible, my tutorial download includes a page 2 with grid like the one in my sample.
