Subject: sketchbooks and murals (HS)
Thank you all for responding to my many questions...
Next semester I want to change my sketchbooks from weekly to every 4 weeks.
First semester I graded each sketchbook every Friday...they had an
assignment...like draw an interior, or draw one object showing three
Some of the sketches were great! Those who are motivated by grades that
I want the students to draw what inspires them but I don't want to see
constant gore and CD covers either. I was thinking of changing my weekly
sketchbooks (graded by rubric) to a quarterly oral discussion with each
Any suggestions? How do others use sketchbooks? What should I be looking
for besides improvement, idea, craftsmanship, use of space....ect.
NEXT> I am doing murals in 2 of my 3 classes at the beginning of next
semester (ON 2 major walls visible by everyone entering the bldg.) I have
never done a mural and I want 2 cohesive murals....I have suggested ideas
like diversity, community and/or the make up of the school
class wants to paint their own individual paintings on the wall.....HELP.
What supplies will I need. Should I use an overhead projector to transfer
the chosen drawing onto the wall?
How should I begin the mural process? (I will be showing examples of local
murals, talking about Riviera and Wyland, and showing examples of photos I
have taken of murals)
Do I need to do an underpainting?
What kind of paint would be best?
How can I get kids to donate?
Those of you who have had successful experiences with murals I would
appreciate any helpful insights. I am a rookie! (First year and LOVING
it....getting better everyday!)
Thanks you so much for all of your advice.
