Collect items or photographs that are important to your family history. Items that tell a story about your family and your heritage. Use these items as inspiration for an art project based on this theme. You may visually tell your story using any visual media: photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, graphic design etc.
Draw one or more planning sketches in your sketchbook. Find another artist that uses the same media. Print an example of their art work and glue it in your sketchbook.
In your sketchbook make a list of supplies you will need to complete this project.
Gather supplies and begin production.
