We do a "warm up" that is often focused on what we are doing sometimes not.
The warm ups are kept in notebooks that also have sketch ideas, notes,
doodles, whatever. I collect these and give them points for keeping up with
them every day. My coworkers don't but we have 6th, 7th and 8th graders do
this so it is like a routine for our art department and helps them focus on
the creative job at hand.
