This year you will maintain a sketchbook. It is your personal space to create. You will have assignments and specific works to create, but the sketchbook is for you. Many artists use sketchbooks as a space/place for inspiration, practice, idea gathering and experimentation. I want you to approach maintaining a sketchbook as a way to expand your creative thinking skills, develop your personal style and have fun with the creation of art through out the blank pages.
Many artists use sketchbooks. Read about an interesting project here: The Sketchbook Project
Here is another post from artist Lisa Congdon on why she keeps a sketchbook

We are fortunate to live in the Boston area and have a wonderful resource of local art museums. As discussed at the beginning of the year you are required to visit an art museum at least one time during this semester.
After students visit a museum they are always inspired, amazed and rave about the wonderful time that they had at the museum. So go and enjoy some art!
Here are a few links to lists of Massachusetts Art Museums.

Research and select the museum carefully for the content, location and hours. Use your student id for discounts or check out passes from the town library. LibraryInsight
