Sketchbook topics are assigned once a month. Students are required to pick one of the topics and turn it in to Mr. Belonio by the end of that month. Artists should feel free to use the sketchbook anytime they want.
Students can use their iPad Minis for their sketchbook assignments, but please make sure to print out the assignment turn in to my mailbox. Recommended apps are ArtStudio, Paper, Sketchbook Express, and Brushes Redux.
(Sketchbooks can be anything that holds blank paper. Please do not use notebooks.)
