How to Make the Art in Pieces Craft:

Step 1: Find a picture you like in a magazine. Draw a large square around it, then divide it into nine equal squares. Cut out the small squares.

Step 2: On a piece of drawing paper, draw the picture from one of the cut squares; you can even turn the square upside down to concentrate on the lines. As you draw, concentrate on the spacing of the lines rather than the outline.

Step 3: Repeat this drawing technique for each square.

Step 4: After you're done drawing, cut out the squares, reassemble your picture on a piece of paper, and glue the squares in place. Color in your picture.
