AIM: What is the sketchbook project? How can we mimic this project in our class?
DO NOW: Ten minute silent drawing - continuing with our pepper.
Today we will discuss the different functions of a sketchbook and look as some ways that sketchbooks are treated. The first thing we are going to do in this class is make sure we have a sketchbook that we want to use. That we want to keep with us and that inspires us to be creative and work towards mastery.
Let's take a minute and look at one example of how sketchbooks are used in The Brooklyn Museum's Sketchbook Project.

AIM: What are the expectations of this course and what are our personal artistic goals?
DO NOW: The do now will involve 10 minutes of silent drawing daily. Each week the do now will focus on seperate drawings of one specific subject. For example, this week we will be drawing a pepper. Monday through Friday for ten minutes we will draw this pepper and next week the subject matter will change.
Today we will focus on the goals and procedures that we have for Pre AP Art. We will review the syllabus as a class and discuss the course requirements.
