Ready, Set, Go
A major part of this course is maintaining a sketchbook. You will have weekly assignments to help you build your sketchbook and develop it as an expression of you and your artwork.
Complete the following:
1. Mend, alter, edit and correct your sketchbook cover. It must be a functional cover and contain the following:
-a picture or drawing of you
-three symbols that represent you
-it must contain your name.
You have the challenge of combining these elements to make an artistic piece that you will have as your cover for the entire year! You may use any materials you want.
2. Create a "pocket" in the front or back cover
3. Set up an area in your house to create art. Gather supplies around your house and create an art bin or box with supplies for creating art. This way every time you have an assignment you won't have to waste time running around for supplies. Take a digital picture of this space and supply box and be prepared to show on your ipad on Monday.
Create three self portrait drawings using three different materials.
Gather 10 images from magazines or other sources that inspire you. Hang them up in your " art area".
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.
