8th graders drew the Stations of the Cross in art tech class. Students drew grids with 1/2-inch squares on small prints of illustrations by contemporary artist Shari Van Vranken. They made proportionate grids with 1-inch squares on their drawing papers in order to scale up the images they are observing. Math concepts are reinforced as students must remain focused on corresponding positions on 2 graphs as they draw the contents of each grid block. When finished with their drawings, students developed their images further with Sketchbook graphic design software on their iPads.
