Mystery Image – Guanyin

Solve the Mystery

“Mystery is at the heart of creativity.” – Julia Cameron

This activity is like a puzzle and can be scaled up or down according to grade level.
For younger students, have them cut out each image square and glue over the corresponding number on the blank grid.
Older students should attempt to carefully draw each image square in the corresponding blank grid to reveal the mystery image.

After the students have finished putting together their mystery image, play The 5 W’s of Art – Guanyin video located in the Related Resources section of this page so they can learn about the object they just “solved.”
