A perfect approach for all art appreciation classes and appropriate for all levels of instruction, the Look -n- Learn Art Sketchbook assignment is an open-ended yet concrete approach to guide student's learning about art. I have used this lesson for gallery walks, student art work critiques, and fine art browsing (in textbooks or internet). Students select five pieces of interest, and sketch a one-minute thumbnail image. Blank templates (for photo-copying) are included for classes which have not yet required sketchbooks. Try this assignment as an introduction to a unit, as a check for understanding in the middle of a study, and/or as an evaluative assessment.
