Do all your students use sketchbooks?

Discussion in 'Art and design' started by raincloud, Mar 25, 2012.

  1. As the title says really. Do you have a policy of all your students using sketchbooks or do just some of them use them? If so what sizes and do you charge them for it? Alternatively do you prefer using loose paper?
  2. I use A4 at the moment because I am working with students with very low confidence who seem to prefer this.
    I am however moving on to digital sketchbooks as well, using video, pictures and audio of students working alongside the traditional sketchbook if they wish but its a pilot thing for next term.
  3. Thanks for the replies. Digital sketchbooks sound good - I have a few students who may be up for trying that idea. Are you using specialist software?
  4. Powerpoint does the job well if they date their entries.
    For older students an online blog is good as they can share their work with other students and comment, great evidence of giving feedback on others work if you are doing BTEC with them.
    An external hardrive is a must though for backing everything up as it'd be a disaster to lose their work :S
