Non-traditional Instruction 2020

Mrs. Maikranz




In your sketchbook, an old book, old composition notebook, journal, or handmade journal address one prompt from the list below for each day we are out of school. Use each prompt to inspire an original and creative art journal page. The key to this assignment is to be as creative, thoughtful, detailed, and original as possible. Go crazy! Think outside the box! Be uniquely you! You may use any media or materials you have available! You may want to google images of smash books or wreck it journals to get an idea of the variety of ways you can go about this assignment. However, I DO NOT want you to simply recreate someone else's ideas in your book. These pages should reflect who you are and your own ideas. Remember, Be uniquely you!! If you have any questions you may email me at or message me on Instagram; username earthsfirstlight. If you want to give me a sneak peek of your work, post on Instagram and tag me!! Enjoy your time off! Be safe and stay healthy!!!!!

Non-traditional Instruction 2020

Mrs. Maikranz




As you know, I sent you home with 20 prompts when I last saw you. Here are many more prompts to get you through the rest of our NTI days. You may continue in the book you have already started or begin a new book. Because our days have turned into several weeks, you do not need to complete one prompt for each added NTI day. You will only need to complete 2 per week from here on out. I am reducing the number required in order to give you plenty of time to create original, personal, meaningful, thoughtful, detailed, creative, high quality, pages!!!
