Students of all ages love to draw cartoons! I assign this sketchbook activity for the students to draw as many of them as they can and fill the page with "positive space". This assignment achieves two things.
1. It is the only assignment that they are allowed to draw cartoons so the students know it is their only opportunity.
2. It actually is more about space than cartoons. Students have to figure out how to fill the entire page with positive space.
