Intro to Art: Sketchbook Challenge #3 (Incredibly Illustrated Idioms)

  1. DEMONSTRATE your understanding for the procedures of the weekly sketchbook by completing a themed/timed sketch.
  2. SUMMARIZE their opinions of their themed sketch by writing a 4-step critique

Today is your third sketchbook challenge, and more importantly, your third chance to get some quick and easy points.

Challenge Description: 

The key to this activity is that understanding that you are limited to just 45-50 mins of class time to work on solving the THEME for the weekly sketch.  While many of us have these grand ideas of what we will accomplish, once the class comes to a close you will need to have a FINISHED concept/idea which solves theme given for the week.

SKETCHBOOK CHALLENGE # 3 : Incredibly Illustrated Idioms 

Upon mindlessly exploring the internet and Instagram one day, I came across an incredibly talented Israeli artist and illustrator’s account: Karen Rosen.

Rosen takes simple idioms or a set of words that have different meanings when used separately than when used together in a sentence and illustrates their LITERAL meaning using simple shapes and colors.  You can see a few below:

Select an idiom from the list below and illustrate the LITERAL meaning behind the saying.  The catch with this sketchbook challenge is you must incorporate at least ONE POST IT NOTE in your drawing.


In Class Live Stream

You will get the entire hour to work in your sketchbook.  As class comes to a close, you will be required to take a photograph, and submit your work, digitally using the means by which you chose earlier in the week by filling out the “DIGITAL PROJECT SUBMISSION”  Be sure to keep your social media accounts on “public” or type your name as the title of your email when you submit your work.

REMEMBER TO USE THE HASHTAG #MHSsketchbookCHALLENGE  when posting images on your social media accounts.
