May 28th                  FREE SKETCHBOOK MAKEUP DAY!! You only need to do this if you missed a sketchbook 





All sketches should be done from direct observation and should be in some type of box no smaller than 3” X 4”.


 Experimentation of materials and techniques are essential in your sketchbooks and mixed media is encouraged.  This is your sketchbook so have fun with it, take it wherever you go and sketch everything and everyone you see.  The more you sketch the better you will become and the easier the ideas will come to you. 


Extra credit will be given to extra work shown to me on Thursdays.


 Happy sketching!!
