    Sketchbooks will be reviewed and graded on Fridays. Sketchbook assignments MUST be labeled with the name of assignment and date to receive a grade. I will grade each sketchbook drawing. Sketchbooks drawings that meet the basic requirements of the prompt, are complete and show effort and skill will be given a grade of 80 or higher. Sketchbooks that are incomplete or show little attention will receive a zero. You have a week to address your grade with me. If you are not satisfied, resubmit the work for a re-grade within a week of grading. Students receiving a 0% MUST submit the work for a re-grade within the week or the zero will remain in the grade book. The highest re-grade that a zero can receive is an 85%.
