I guess a lot of what has been said re sketchbook assignments is true, =
however I also agree that sketchbooks are a very important part of =
Visual Arts education. They should be a journal of visual ideas and =
development of creative thinking.
For many of my senior students who apply to Art Colleges etc. , my =
suggestion is to take along their sketchbooks as part of their =
portfolio.
Here are some things that have worked for me with sketchbook =
assignments: I give a specific drawing assignment at the beginning of =
the week, often related to the unit of study at the time, students are =
given 10 minutes at the beginning of every class to work on them. On =
Friday all sketches are checked and marked. Students learn to expect =
this every week. I also have used lists prepared in weekly segements =
,drawings to be completed for a specific date handed in.=20
With my grade nine classes I have started to use the sketchbook as a =
journal notebook. All terminology, art history and aesthetic =
appreciation notes are kept in the book. Students are asked to record =
the written work in a visually pleasing format using graphic titles, =
visual drawings and background that go with the topic ie. watercolour =
sketch background with notes over top.
