A big single image is made by combining smaller spray-painted images to make a graffiti jigsaw wall. A large scene or image is first chosen after making sketches and recording ideas. This image is then divided into smaller sections, each spray-painted onto an individual cardboard box face. Once each section has been allocated to its own box, they are then placed together to reassemble the image as a whole, jigsaw-style. The effect shows how a larger and more complicated image can be broken down into simpler and more manageable pieces before being reformed to make up the whole picture again.

Children could begin by dividing and cutting up magazine pictures to make simple jigsaws. They could create or draw their own pictures, then cut them up and reassemble them as a jigsaw. To add further character, they could make an abstract coloured painting and cut into shapes to reform into a jigsaw puzzle.
