Intro to Art: Sketchbook Challenge “Copy a Copy a Copy”

  • DEMONSTRATE their understanding for the procedures of the weekly sketchbook by completing a themed/timed sketch.


  • Make a copy of some text or image from any book.  This could be one of the comic books that are provided, or something personal to you.
  • Alter or manipulate that “copied” image by cropping or changing colors, zooming in or out, or even rotating it.
  • Use the new “copy” to create an ORIGINAL sketch in your sketchbook.  Whatever shows up on the screen of your phone should be represented in whole on the page of your sketchbook.

What’s your idea of ORIGINAL ART?

Question to Reflect:  What might this sketch have looked like if you were given some time to pick a book of personal significance?  Do you feel like this experience was better or worse using your camera/apps on your phone as a the COPIER?  Explain…

Painting 2: Sketchbook Challenge “Keith Haring Thumbnails”

  • Apply media, techniques, and processes with sufficient skill, confidence, and sensitivity that their intentions are carried out in their artworks by creating a series of 3 thumbnail images that will be used for their final painting.
  • Correlate responses to works of visual art with various techniques for communicating meanings, ideas, attitudes, views, and intentions by identifying visual characteristics in KEITH HARING’S art work and keeping a written list.

Since today IS a sketchbook day, what better way to spend the time together in class then by creating your thumbnails for the up and coming painting challenge.  I’m going to push your work a bit further today though, by the end of class today, you will be responsible for completing 3 thumbnails that can fall into the following categories:

  • Motivational Quote
  • Keith Haring Imitation

You will get the class time to work through this challenge by working with watercolor and some basic washes.  Be mindful of the time you have and also be aware that some of these ideas could be used as an influence to your final piece.

You will be asked to turn in these thumbnails digitally using the hashtag #KeithHaringThumbnails
