Hi Bets.
I have several independant study students. First off, they must submit a
proposal stating what they intend to do. As the title states they must work
INDEPENDENTLY. That means no "Mrs. B. I don't know what I should do next."
I require an outline of thier stated projects/artists they want to learn
(I have some art history indys) They are required to do show me progress
every friday. Depending on what they are looking to learn/develope, a
sketchbook is an essential tool in reporting what they were at least thinking
about (thumbnail sketches and ideas) Then I can help direct rather than
All of my studio and intro classes require a sketch book or portfolio folder.
Life drawing happens once a week regardless of the projects. Now I see my
kids every day for 42 mins on a rotating schedule that gives one 70 min class
a day. It's great when that long period falls on drawing day!
hope this helps

What is the work load or # of projects you require of the students?
Do you require sketchbooks? Special sketchbook assigments...etc?

I would appreciate any info you can share. Basically I would like to see if
I am requiring too much or not enough.

Thanks for you help
