We cannot draw figures for you, and it It is not clear what you mean by an "array". Does it have to be rectangular N x M array with all elements filled by a box? If so, you can make more arrays with 16 because it is not a prime number.

19 -> 1 x 19 or 19 x 1
16 -> 1 x 16, 16 x 1, 2 x 8, 8 x 2, and 4 x 4
