Everyone is doing exactly what you should be doing...concentrating on the assignment and following directions and learning how to "see" better and to pay attention to the eye-to-hand coordination developement each of you must accomplish this semester.
Take time on your sketchbook assignments. Many of you seemed to rush through the exercise and some of the sketches were line drawings and NOT figure/ground drawings.
Your sketchbooks are important. Give them the attention they need outside of class.
I will always give you time in class to draw in your sketchbooks as well. No excuses for not having the 20 drawings each week.
