The Traveling Journal: A Different Kind of Sketchbook
Brisco, Nicole
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v107 n2 p34-35 Oct 2007
Looking for an interesting way to encourage her students to work in a sketchbook, the author decided to start a traveling journal that students could pass around throughout the year. In this article, she describes how she motivated students to use this as a tool for developing artistic practices. Students were not limited to a particular media or style and were encouraged to draw, paint, collage, write, and develop the idea into a finished work as they passed the sketchbook around. (Contains 2 online resources.)
