  1. I’m new to programming Android devices via the Android Studio IDE; I've been taking online courses.  My first goal is to code a single activity for an Android tablet that’s a basic pixel editor.  I'm asking for some advice from on how best to start. 

    I can create a 32×32 matrix, representing the LEDs in a panel, two ways:
       1. Apply a GridView to create a 32×32 grid array
       2. Android's graphics features like Draw to create a 32×32 array

    In either case, I need to be able to change and store the color of each pixel.
    Is either 1 or 2 a superior starting point?
