I started the students this year with an assignment in their sketchbook.  They were given a sheet of quotes about art by various artists and their assignment was to respond to one of the quotes that resonated with them.  They had to decide whether or not they wanted the quote itself to be front and center - grab the spotlight on their page by using some creative lettering; or did they want to focus more on creating an image (drawing, painting, collage etc.) that was in response to how they understood the quote - but they still had to include the quote.
