Select one unit from above and using the format outlined below, write a minimum of a one-page essaydetailing all aspects of the unit. Each paragraph should consist of 3 sentences and no more than 7 sentences for each bullet item below.

  1. Name of Unit
  2. Core Concepts explained in detail
  3. Vocabulary-used, defined and applied
  4. Pre-sketchbook assignment/technique exercises
