Intro to Art: Sketchbook Make-Up Day

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

One target today…one goal today.   The featured image for today’s post says it all, let’s not make excuses today!

Both classes will have an opportunity to RE-SUBMIT any sketchbook challenges that they may have forgotten about, been absent for, or simply left incomplete for credit today.  The only major difference is you will not have the usual 24 grace period to finish and then post as all work must be time stamped within 10 mins of your class period ending.

Below is a theme list for the first six week’s worth of sketchbooks.  Remember, for full credit to be given, the theme as a whole needs to be addressed or solved.

  • Week 1 (Sept 8): Random Words “Robot” “Animal” “Homemade”
  • Week 2 (Sept 15): Worst Children’s Book Character
  • Week 3 (Sept 22): Bat Gadget
  • Week 4 (Sept 29): Pen & Ink Meme
  • Week 5 (Oct 6): Inktober “SWORD”

In addition to the regular #MHSskechbookChallenge hashtag, be sure to include #MHSmakeupart to give your posts TOP PRIORITY over past submissions.


Graphic Coms: Selection Tools and Photoshop Basics Quiz

  • STW use formative assessment as a means to gauge their level of understanding of the Selection Tool(s) as well as other basic Photoshop functions.

Pretty straight to the point today.

Even though there are a lot of moving parts to today’s class, be aware of what is needed to complete for credit this period.

  1. Online quiz will be open for 24 hrs.  highest score counts (click here)
  2. “Rotten Apple”  assignment is back open for RE-SUBMISSION
  3. Leftover time should be given to mastering the QUICK SELECTION tool as well as MAGIC WAND functions.

Drawing: Difference Between CONTOUR and CROSS CONTOUR LINES

  • STWBAT apply their understanding for LINE by practicing CROSS CONTOUR LINE hands exercise.
  • SW identify characteristics of line by taking visual notes in their sketchbooks

For the first have of today’s class we will take a look the major characteristic differences between CONTOUR and CROSS CONTOUR line drawings and what types of benefits each has when working on a sketch/drawing.

For the second half, I put the responsibility on the class to “Ask Me Anything…” in regards to drawing, sketching, the professional sector, pricing work, or furthering education for example.  No topics are off limits, unless it has nothing to do with moving the discussion forward on becoming better at drawing.
