SKETCHBOOK // WK 13 Thursday Nov 19


Make-up Sketches

This is an opportunity to revisit no more than 10 past drawings from previous sketch assignments. You have the option to select drawings you were unable to complete or drawings you wish to reattempt for a grade improvement.

If you choose to revisit past assignments you must properly mark them with a sticky note or ‘dog-ear’ the page so that your TA can find them within your sketchbook. You may also draw after the previous assignment (where you normally would draw for a new sketchbook assignment).

Be sure to properly label the assignment you are revisiting with the correct label format. (Example: S10 for the final sketch in week 02)


Due Tuesday, November 24 at the beginning of Lecture
