My Goals


  • Tell a Story: Does my sketch tell a story or communicate an idea? Did I intentionally use elements such as body language, facial expression, gesture, exaggeration, movement, color, value, shadow, light, positive and negative space, detail, props or composition to tell the story?
  • Use materials and tool well: Did I use my art materials and tools in an engaging manner? Did I make marks on the paper that are pleasing to view, contribute to the meaning, and do not distract or overwhelm? For my skill level, this means: did I use pencil, pen, ink, paint, and paintbrushes well?
  • Like my art: Do I like the sketch? Would I like to look at it again? Does it have qualities that pull me back into it? Is there a way to redo it so I like it more?
