a significant portion of your grade. Each student is required to keep a sketchbook that is dedicated to this class and used daily for in-class exercises, as well as independent research, clippings, photographs, ideation, sketching, writing, recording, problem-solving, notes from lectures, demos, videos, and the collection of other information and resources. Sketchbooks will be checked throughout the course of the semester. Bring your sketchbooks to every class meeting. Minimum size for a sketchbook is 8x 12 inches. Consider this a sketchbook/ database/ archive. Sketchbooks are checked after every project. In order to get full sketchbook credit, make sure the following items are covered in your sketchbook and clearly labeled at the top of each page. You will not receive credit for unlabeled pages. Class Exercises include photos and/or drawings and notes Conceptual Research for projects. This may include notes on concepts youve considered, historical notes, social movements, and notes on the materials used (where does it come from? practical uses? poetic applications?

o Artist Research You will need three (3) artists work for each project with images of their work and notes in the connection to the project and interesting to you one artist should take up one spread (facing pages). At least 1/3 of all your artist images must be taken from books or journals found in the library. The artist should be influential or contemporary with national or international recognition. Images may be scanned, photocopied, or printed and should be clearly labeled with the: o Artists name, year, art movements associated with them o Titles of the works o Materials o Context (if needed) o Year made o Title of book and Call number (or website url) with Author/Editor (You may o

Independent artist and art research Not all research done is (or should be) specifically assigned research. This is your opportunity to develop and record your own astonishment. This should include images and brief notes on artists works and site sources (which book or website). Materials Lists with sources, and costs A carefully organized Timelog for each project. The timelog will not be referred to when grading projects. This is a professional practice habitbuilding component of your sketchbook. It is much easier to price your work (should you chose to sell it) when you know how much money and time it cost you. Place time log and materials info on one page for each project. Proposals will often be assigned in sketchbooks but graded separately.
