Grades 5-8 contribute if they choose
Every October, artists around the world are challenged to make a drawing a day for the month. 

Straw-blowing idea-starter, grade 7
A few years ago prompts were added, but only as suggestions (today's prompt is "stretch.")
Sumi-e, grade 5
CMBS students have taken up the challenge with gusto, so we started a display and add to it each day. It has already outgrown the first bulletin board, and reaches around the corner to an adjacent space!

Pen & Ink
INKTOBER makes now the perfect time to introduce ink drawing with feather quills and steel nibs, calligraphy, ink-straw-blowing a la Stefan Bucher's "Daily Monster," Sumi-e (Japanese brush painting), and all kinds of printmaking.
