I am the art teacher at a Title 1 school. I am inspired by the enthusiasm all the students have for art. They are very excited to do whatever I have planned for their class each time I visit. Unfortunately I am only able to see each class once or twice a month. I would like to provide the fourth and fifth graders with sketch books so they can draw every day. Just as they are encouraged to write down their thoughts in a journal each day I would like to see them express themselves artistically. I want them to look at the world around them in a new way and be able to record it in their sketch book. In order to provide a book for each fourth and fifth grader I would need 110 unlined journals. My hope is that they would use these books the entire school year to sketch what they see around them as well draw plans for their projects.
