This may seem quite obvious to most of you, but I'm
debating about whether or not to require that
sketchbooks for 6th grade should be based on
observation versus imagination.
I know that most art schools are looking for drawing
from life in high school portfolios, but is now the
time to start pushing this?
I have been stressing the importance of routine
practice to improve drawing skills since most of them
have stated that they want to become more successful
with their drawing skills.
95% did not take this to heart this 6 weeks. The
sketchbooks are clever and very imaginative though.
On the other hand, I wouldn't be asking if deep down I
didn't feel like they should be OBSERVING, plus TEKS
say they should be observing. Am I asking too much?
Not enough? Maybe I should ask for half and half?
