"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." --Pablo Picasso
Students face many challenges in their day at school access to quality supplies should not be something that inhibits their ability to create.
I teach a diverse group of students in NC.
We live in a rapidly growing community outside of a major urban area. My students come from a variety of different backgrounds and lifestyles. Despite the various challenges that each student faces in there lives they are creative and enthusiastic and are constantly inspiring me.
Individual sketchbooks allow students to express themselves in there own personal space. Sketchbooks are used for project planning, note taking, journaling and free creative work. I also use sketchbooks as a tool to teach organizational skills outside the traditional classroom. Ensuring that every student gets there own personal, quality sketchbook encourages students in there artistic development. As we begin the second half of our year many supplies have been used up and are not able to be replaced at this time, we are in desperate need of more colored pencils in my classroom.
Some students are willing and able to get there own sketchbooks, but many more are not able to get there own sketchbook for financial or other reasons.
Or they are unable to get a quality sketchbook, therefore the quality of their project suffers. Eliminating this, seemingly small, obstacle for all of our students would do a lot for there confidence in the art room.
