Sketchbook Madness is happening this week in the art room! All students are creating personal sketchbooks that will be kept in the art room all year long. Students will be able to work in their sketchbooks throughout the year. Many artists keep sketchbooks in which they experiment ideas and collect drawings of their environment. Sketchbooks are like diaries for artists!

The most famous sketchbooks are those of Leonardo da Vinci. Pablo Picasso produced 178 sketchbooks in his lifetime. Wow, that is a lot of sketchbooks! Will you create that many in your lifetime?

Classroom Sketchbook Rules:
1. Take your time on your drawings
2. Be original. Do not copy.
3. Do not waste paper.
4. Crayons and colored pencils only.
