Pre AP Art 1 » Sketchbook Assignments


Sketchbook – Each week you are going to be responsible for a sketch based on the following one word prompts. Each of these sketches will be based on direct observation (not from photographs or an image on your phone or other device), but may be taken to any degree of realism or abstraction that you see fit. While these are very basic instructions, you can and should always consider thinking outside of the box. The obvious answer is easy -- so please try to challenge yourself.  You may use Google or other search engines to research and get ideas, but DO NOT COPY.


Date the drawing and write the word at the bottom of the page. You are doing one sketch per week – in addition to the work you need to do for the class. These sketches should be done in your sketchbook. I expect you to make a strong effort with each sketch. Show them to Ms. Fallon for a Daily Grade by the due date on the class calendar.
