Students are required to get a sketchbook by Monday's class. We will be using this sketchbook daily and it will be 40% of the students grade. I also sent home a sketchbook order form if you would like to purchase one from the school for $5.00. The money goes directly back into the art program for supplies.
Looking forward to having an exciting quarter!
