ADVANCED ART – SKETCHBOOK ASSIGNMENTS
Artists use their sketchbooks in a variety of different
ways. It is a powerful tool for creativity, learning,
experimentation, and revisiting.
Use your sketchbook for the following:
a. Write notes to yourself, or jot down quick flashes of ideas you
may have.
b. Make a list of ideas for creative processes and projects.
c. Copy inspirational quotes or paste inspirational pictures
d. Doodle, draw, sketch on location
e. Have color samples
f. Keep it by your bed and record dreams you may have that may
inspire a work of art.
3 simple rules:
1. NEVER ERASE A SKETCH
2. NEVER TEAR OUT PAGES
3. DATE ALL OF YOUR SKECTHES
My Expectations of your sketchbook.
 Sketchbooks will be due every TUESDAY.
If our class does not
meet on that Tuesday, then that assignment will be due on
Wednesday.
 I will assign a “hand in” spot for sketchbooks.
They must be
handed in at the BEGINNING of the class period. Assignments are
not worked on during class. You will be given a week plus one
weekend for each sketchbook assignment to be worked on outside of
class.
 Students will get 2 separate grades every marking period for
sketchbook assignments. This is broken up as follows:
WEEKS
1 – 4 = 100% (Progress report grade)
WEEKS 5 – 8 = 100% (Marking period grade)
 Each week you can earn up to 25 points for completed sketchbook
assignments.
 The drawing you sketch for the assignment must take up at least
80% of the page and should not be just a line drawing. You must
include shading and detail. Examples will be provided for extra
understanding. I will post the assignments in the room as well.
 Drawings are NOT to be traced (obviously) or look elementary.
You are an artist now, I want to see your abilities and talent!
 Challenge yourself to draw from nature and from observation. You
may do ONE collage per marking period
 Label each sketchbook assignment as well as sign and date each
sketch.
 Your sketches may be in black and white or color. Both are
acceptable.
 All work should be presented neat and acceptable.
 If you are absent on a Tuesday, you will be required to turn in
the assignment the NEXT day you are in class… at the beginning of
class.
DO YOUR ABSOLUTE BEST!
I’m not just trying to torture you with these
assignments. I am trying to prepare you for college and the artists’
world beyond this classroom. If you think this is a lot of work… just
wait until you leave the walls of Warren Hills. In my opinion, if you
are serious about art, these assignments should be enjoyable and well a
fun challenge. Push yourself. And if you still think it is too much,
maybe you should rethink why you took this class.
