Homework 
Semester One

Homework assignments will be due every Tuesday.  No late homework will be accepted.  Each week you are going to be responsible for a sketch based on the following word prompts. Each of these sketches will be based on direct observation, but may be taken to any degree of realism or abstraction that you see fit. At least two elements of art should be used in each assignment.  While these words give you a very basic instruction, you can and should always consider thinking outside of the box. The obvious answer is easy so please try to challenge yourself. All assignments must be kept in the black sketchbook that was given to you.  Please do them in the order they appear on the list. Date the drawing and write the word prompts on the back of the page. Each assignment is worth 25 points.
