I've been given a summer project on the themes "human life" and "structures"
I have 2 sketchbooks to work on, (one of each) I was wondering if anybody has any ideas on how to make my sketchbooks more interesting? What can i include? Regarding layouts and ideas on content?
It's for A'levels (: x

layouts- have subthemes flowing between pages for each theme, be it colour/texture/compostition. Try and add texture to the sketchbook like fabric materials? bits of metal...honestly i might sound tacky but when done right it could really work well
-dont just use pencil sketches, use as many media as you can- also whats really good is a full sketchbook. so dont be to carefull, overlap, cross out/annotate/stick over/redraw...
-try to link both themes together?
ideas: human life: think about aging, children, elderly, family, portraits, transition from child to adult, birth & death.
-em, the way we go about our life-hectic lifestyles, time
-the things we rely on-machines/money/news/information
structures: well anything really! anything weird or odd, bridges/modern public art
-natural structures, mountains, rivers etc...
NB: i dont know what type of art A level is so im just giving some suggestions for all levels, u might already know this but i hoped it helped

Variety. A wide variety will help you explore your themes fully.
Use lots of different techniques and resources to get your ideas to come out.
Here's a few to test:
* Cover every cm of your page
* Use words not pictures
* Colour vs. black & white
