Using Sketchbooks

Description

A look at how sketchbooks can become a valuable way for pupils to work through ideas and research their own concepts.

Traditionally the preserve of artists, Gilian Robinson, from the Faculty of Education at Anglia Ruskin University, thinks sketchbooks have a role throughout school, not just the art classroom.

As artist and author, Gillian looks at how sketchbooks can become pupils' personal playgrounds, freeing them to work through ideas and research concepts of their own.

She shows how they don't need to be called sketchbooks - or look like one - at all, and shows how teachers can introduce their own versions, from the Z book to the origami sketchbook.
