# Draw Shapes On A Grid Worksheets

How to Use a Grid to Help You Draw Geometric Shapes - Did you know that you can use a grid method to draw geometric shapes? You can use this method to replicate, enlarge, or even create a smaller version of a shape. It is, indeed, a time-consuming process but is inexpensive and easy method. It is a method that involves drawing a grid over a reference image or photo, followed by a grid made of equal ratio on your work surface.

Using a mechanical pencil will help you create thin and clear lines and when you do, draw these lines with a very light hand.
