Sketchbooks

Essential Question:  Why are sketchbooks valuable tools for artists?

Objective: Students will create and maintain a sketchbook to – Develop personal style, visualize concepts, create schematic layouts, and record artistic explorations.

We do not always have the luxury to see inside artists’ sketchbooks, so please enjoy your peek at some nice artwork.
