At our studio, sketchbooks will include doodles, mark makings, practice exercises, vocabulary terms, technique examples and a combination of materials. A student's sketchbook should be a chronological mind map of their visual understandings. Such important emphasis is made on sketchbooks because it plays a key roll in each student's development as an artist.
At our Studio, the sketching technique is a preliminary, drawing exploration which is essential for planning future art pieces. A sketchbook allows students to get lost in the pages of their imagination so that they can express themselves and practice new techniques and depict different ideas.
