Lesson: I AM HERE (Cartography Sketchbook Covers)
I suppose one of the benefits to having semester long classes is that I get to now double-up my sketchbook covers. Hmmm... well, maybe that's a plus. Currently I am teaching Drawing 1 and I've always wanted to do a map project. So here I go... a Cartography Cover: I AM HERE! (A two and a half week project... actually about three thanks to cold weather days off...)
I started out the semester discussing how I wanted to utilize the sketchbooks in this class. Instead of using it as a super organizing tool, I wanted the kids to feel as though it was their journal, their space, to think and create and write, and draw. This was to be their visual journal.
