The JFJ Invade Greensboro, NC


Recently we worked with Artist/Educator Sam Peck at the Lincoln Academy in Greensboro, North Carolina. We spent the day working with eighth, fifth, and fourth graders. We got Sam hooked on the visual journal at the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching NCCAT) in February, and he wrote a grant to bring us to his school. It was a good day, and hopefully a few of those students will turn into future Journal Fodder Junkies. We are gratefully to Sam and those responsible for having us.

This a great way for grades 4-12 to get involved in re-defining the concept of the sketchbook to:
Visual Journal
Think Tank with WORDS & PICTURES

This also provides an excellent way to integrate Language Arts into your classroom. It also provides a way for collaborations with classroom teachers.
