Student Narrative

This sketchbook was made in collaboration with over 300 people! The cover: the drop cloth is from the art studio where I taught-it was used as a "table cloth" and collected media of all sorts throughout the year it even was at a community mural project. I then created a mini-book that I have been taking with me wherever I go for the past 6 months: Denver, Providence, NYC, Ghana, Washington. I pull out the book and add lines and colors and soon everyone wants to join--so a dialogue is created as people from all over have added marks, lines, doodles, etc.
