The sketchbook is a vital tool for the artist; a place to record ideas, inspirations, and thoughts to improve and inform your artistic endeavors.  Your sketchbook will serve as a “go-to” resource throughout the school year to revisit your strengths and to glean potential beginnings of solutions for classroom assignments.  If your sketchbook doesn’t contain filled pages, then you have denied yourself a valuable resource that will serve a variety of needs in the not too distant future.  If you are stuck and need even more ideas click here.

Keep working and take it with you everywhere you go!!!
