C. Look at the following sketchbooks and the ways you can make your sketchbook a hotbed of media, imagery, and ideas that will lead to your Concentration.
D. Look at the list on this site and think about the ideas in relation to your ideas, so far, about your Concentration.
Make notes about all the possibilities from this list and others that come to mind. Discuss it with classmates. Try to assess what is doable within this time frame and setting and what truly will maintain your interest and enthusiasm.
Your Concentration should show a consistent stylistic interest (similarity in artistic strategy) AND evolution of that style. Consider what content is important to you and what art-making methods are interesting to you.
E. From this introduction, share your personal artistic goals with classmates the ways which you think you can help one another. Continue to share artists or images that you find inspiring, particularly any that might contribute to your own and classmates development.
