GCSE Art sketchbook ideas: Sometimes the simplest things can provide the best learning opportunity. This crumpled up piece of newspaper resting on the sand allows students to practise drawing form, detail and space. Actual newspaper, as well as textured wallpaper, has been glued onto the page in places.
Many high school Painting / Fine Art students worry that their sketchbooks must be wild, gestural explorations, with layers of media exploding from each page. This sketchbook is a reminder that this is not always the case. Here, a sketchbook layout has been approached with the sophisticated eye of a graphic designer; each page taking on the aesthetic of a contemporary magazine.
This AS Level Art sketchbook presentation again reminds us of what the essence of a quality sketchbook should be: quality drawings (image sources clearly shown), surrounded by unobtrusive, comprehensive annotation. A simple yet striking black and white sketchbook page.
