Daily Sketchbook 8/31

Last time we sketched out what you will need for your "mindful moment" image each time we do that for your daily sketchbook. By the way, I will be trying to do the mindful moments on a consistent basis this year, but if it would be helpful for you to do them more frequently, just let me know.

At any rate, please use some ink and/or a marker and/or a micron pen to make your sketch from last time look like the one below.

Each time we do a mindful moment in class you will be expected to photograph and upload this image. Please please please know that I need you to have this image finished before you come to class on Friday.
If you do not finish it in our first 15 minutes today please use tomorrow's daily sketchbook time to finish "inking" this. Thank you in advance.

Here is the image...

Daily Sketchbook 8/29

We are prepping for our mindfulness exercises for the year.
I have a pencil image below (with a pencil for scale) that I want you to duplicate (yes, in pencil) as closely as you can.
Don't worry about inking at this point, that will come on Wednesday.
Please pay attention to the particulars - for example, the style of lettering at the top.

If you finish "early" please make sure to upload it and quietly put the ipad away and get out your current drawing to work on.

Daily Sketchbook 8/25

In pen, on the next available page, draw your home's entryway.
From memory.
Focus on line and don't worry about shading.
Fill the page. Try to get detailed.
Don't worry about Perfect.
Or perfectly straight lines (so no rulers).
A little wonkiness can be healthy.

Daily Sketchbook 8/23

The first daily in-class prompt of the year.
Please hold your excitement.

Draw some cloth with folds. You have two options.
First option, get a mirror and draw from your own clothing.
Second option, draw from the clothing of one of your peers.

Focus on shape and form and value please.

You do not need to fill the entire page.

Please draw in pencil only.
