Keeping a sketchbook is a crucial part of an Artist's creative development. Students in Introduction to Art Survey are expected to keep a sketchbook throughout the quarter. Sketchbooks should be a reflection of each individual student and students are encouraged to fill them not only with drawings, but with visual references, resources and anything else they find inspirational. Listed below are ideas for sketchbook projects that students may use. Students are also allowed to use their own ideas. Sketchbooks should include independent sketchbook entries, classroom notes and project thumbnails. Sketchbooks will be assessed on techniques, processes, individual growth, research and reflection. There will be periodic checkpoints for the instructor to assess where the student is in his or her process.
The sketchbook rubric can be found at the bottom of this page.
