Got Sketch?

Many artists say that the sketchbook is one of the most important tools they have. We discussed why that might be. Sketchbooks are a great place to:

1. Plan big projects.
2. Jot down ideas to develop further later.
3. Practice techniques.
4. Do some visual brainstorming.
5. Express yourself!

One of the best things about being a fifth grade art student is getting your very own sketch book. For now, we use it in the art room, but later in the year students will take them home to work on them if they like.

This week, everybody designed a cover for their sketchbook.

I like your list of reasons for sketchbooks. I'll share that with my students!
