Some of you may know that my dad is an artist. This is a game we used to play with him when my brothers and I were little. He would make a design and we would have to copy it. Sometimes it’s more difficult than you think it’s going to be. My best tips are this:
1. Use your estimating skills to figure out where on the edge of the square to start making your lines. For example, is it halfway? Is it about a third?
2. Be aware of parallel lines and intersecting lines. Notice where they cross and where they converge.
3. Think about shapes before you begin. Sometimes it’s even easier to draw a complete shape (like a circle) even if only part of it is inside the square.
