Grade 7, 8 and 9 Art 


 Try to relax as you draw and enjoy yourself.  Many artists listen to their favorite music while they work to block outside distractions.




USE ONLY ONE PAGE FOR EACH ENTRY.  If you make a mistake, hide it inside your drawing or just ignore it. 

 Be creative and have fun!  

Your sketchbook is a visual diary, a place to develop technical skill, a place to plan your artwork, and a place to take notes for your art course. Keeping a sketchbook will make you more aware of your surroundings and increase your drawing skills. Your perception and abilities will improve with every drawing. Like any other skill, drawing well takes PRACTICE.

Remember Effort of Drawing 

           A 2-minute drawing looks like a 2-minute drawing.

  • Your drawing ability will only improve with effort.
  •  If you use less than 30 minutes to complete a drawing do another.
  •  Increasing technical difficulty will help growth of drawing skill

  Originality and Creativity in Interpretation

·      Draw from life and your imagination

·      Show an interesting and original point of view

Variation of Drawings – Make dawings look different

Composition – Use the page of your sketchbook.

  • Avoid a centered, bulls-eye type composition
  • Have your drawing go beyond the edges of the page.
  • Always include the background or environment
