Welcome to dickblick
The "grid method" has been used for centuries to create accurate perspective when painting.
Every 7 oz, 100% unbleached cotton Artist Grid canvas is triple-primed, then printed with blue grid lines. This makes it easier to place objects from a photograph and plot landscapes, still lifes, and portraits.
These ¾" deep canvases feature staple-free sides so artists can incorporate every inch of the canvas into the artwork. The canvases are archival and acid-free.
A Blick Exclusive! — These convenient multi-packs of 24 are perfect for classrooms and beginning artists!
™ The Artist Grid is a trademark.

Completely satisfied with product!
from San Jose, CA
Good solid product! Grid lines help place my composition and underdrawing. Fast shipment. Well packed. Would buy from again.
Great quality frame!
By Christina the muralist

I really enjoyed my grid canvases. I used 6 of them to make small paintings for a nursery. The grid isn't perfectly straight but it's a great general guideline for mapping out the artwork, scaling, perspective, etc. I found the quality of the canvas to be fantastic. Will definitely use again!

Great delivery time!

from Ballwin, MO
Since this is a Christmas gift for my grandson, it is impossible for me to rate the product, so I dealt with the delivery & cost.

How fabulous!!! It's about time! Thnx.
from West Palm Beach, Florida
I've spent hours providing my own grid, very carefully, not to show pencil marks. This is one fabulous addition to the artist's repertoire. Many, many thanks. JL

Excellent - What about one in Linen/Oils
Well worth getting into this older technique of lining up a drawing to transfer onto a canvas, this was practised by most of the old masters in one form or another, and even modernists like Gauguin were doing the same thing. It's astonishing that you don't see more variations on this product, as even some fantastic artists are not very eager to break out the ruler to frame things up, like an architect would. I like that it has both large and small squares in the grid, allowin you to transfer larger field drawing compositions or smaller gridded moleskin details. I just wish that this product would expand to include linen and oil priming.

Wow, no more graph paper!
from New Jersey
This is my first order for artist grid canvas because I just became aware of it. Can't wait to try it out for a realistic portrait, scene or still life. So I think I'll be buying more.

Fabulous Idea; Poor Execution
What a fabulous idea to put grids on canvas. It would save incredible time and allow for precision in drawing.BUT THE LINES AREN'T STRAIGHT!!!Please go back to the manufacturer and insist on quality control. I've never seen these anywhere else and would love to have this product in a form that was usable!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
