Being an artist is like being a musician or an athlete.....YOU MUST practice on a regular basis...sometimes...daily.
In addition to classroom assignments, Students in Art III and AP will be required to keep a sketch book and turn them in on a weekly basis. Each week a different assignment/theme/topic will be given. It will be up to the student to determine style, media and subject matter for each assignment unless specified.
Students often say " When do I get to draw what I want too?" Well now is the chance to do so. You will have one week to complete the assignment.
Sketchbooks are to be treated as individual pieces of artwork. Things to consider for each assignment: Use DIRECT OBSERVATION for references. Composition use entire page, Elements of Art, Principles of Design and Relating to theme/topic.
