Studio Art 360: Sketchbook TUESDAY!

FUN! http://busymockingbird.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/img_5151.jpg?w=620&h=745


  • 2.1P: Engage in making a work of art or design without having a preconceived plan.
  • Sketchbooks are challenging… how have you been able to LEARN about your abilities through this weekly sketchbook practice? EXPLAIN how your skills have been developed over the weeks.

Sketchbook Assignment: (Come to class with this SELFIE MADE and PRINTED!) Using your own camera, take a selfie – your entire head needs to be in the photograph… Print out the photograph, cut out the head, and glue it to the sketchbook page. Using the photograph that has been glued down – resolve the rest of the picture with a friend. Let them begin the background and encourage them to DISREGARD to what was in the original background. HAVE FUN with this. Check out Mica Angela Hendrick’s website – see what her and her daughter can come up with. http://goo.gl/Xiihh1 Mr. Korb and his daughter’s run at this assignment HERE.

Reflection / Evaluation: Today’s work was collaborative… what did you do to help your classmate in their drawing? What did your classmate do to help you? How are you going to RESOLVE this week’s drawing to make it SPECTACULARLY SUCCESSFUL?
