5th Grade is currently creating the cover of their own, hand made sketchbook! Sketchbooks are like an artists journal or notebook. 5th graders will be utilizing these sketchbooks for taking notes, creating preliminary sketches or drawings and during "free-draw" time. On the cover of their sketchbooks, students are creating designs out of their names using patterns of line, color and images. If this topic seems a little vague to you for 5th graders, it's because it is! I love to give my older bunch of artists a wide range for creativity since they have the developed minds for it more so then in the younger grades. A project like this right in the beginning of the year gives me a good idea of the creativity and ability of the 5th grade class as a whole! Sketchbooks are a great way to store ideas, drawings and notes about artists and artworks that they are learning about to later refer to after leaving 1st grade.
Learning objectives: Techniques in using pencils, crayons and markers, listening to guided instruction, pattern.
Sketchbook: a journal or book used for ideas and drawings by artists.
Pattern: Something that is repeated over and over. (whether it be line, color or an image)
