The question I posed to myself was how to encourage kids to write more with pencil and paper. Data confirms the benefits of this modality in the learning centers of young brains. I showed school-aged kids having fun with writing tools including pencils, pens, brushes, markers, etc. The umbrella theme, Write On, is suggestive of 1960’s student empowerment and, of course, literally challenges kids to write. I photographed some of my nieces and nephews for the project. All images are my own except where noted. Some images used in the long portrait montage are copyright of others.
The goal is to reach kids, teachers, administrators and parents of school-aged children to encourage handwriting.
