Even a glossary can look interesting and be creative!
Every sketchbook in my 'outstanding' school has one of these in the back. Over the year your students can add subject specific language. In the lid of the paints add the artists names that you have looked at. There is a space for adjectives which comes in handy as a starter activity if you are looking at a piece or series of art works.
I encourage students to fill in the different words and definitions in lots of bright colours which they enjoy!
