Get your cards ready. We will pile them by topic. Then we will each get a new one for our deck. You can trade them with others if the other agrees.

Using your new 'double' deck - your ideas + the ideas of other artists - start making your first image.

By the end of the week you should be able to start articulating your theme!
 
Finish your research on Trading Cards so we can start to make them and trade them.

 

Start working on this today - use the art history books and some drawing paper to make a start on some ideas ... we will be finishing this project this week...

Friday and Monday we are schedualed to be in the computer lab to work with photo shop to edit our pictures.

I will be grading your sketch books next week - you will need to make  sketch book page on your blog. I would love to see the actual 'book' or collection of drawings. Remember you should be spending between 2 1/2 to four hours a week on it. Thus you should have A LOT of work by now.

Also AP students you need to have your bredth section done before Thanksgiving break and all GOOD quality pictures. Please read the guidlines on the AP guidelines. This is your responsibility!!!!!!!!!!!
