Dozens of students at Miller Middle School in Marshalltown are producing some amazing work in a national effort called Inktober. Led by Miller art teachers Melissa Thelen and Baily Klammer, Inktober has students create a different ink drawing every day in October during their free time.
“By the end of October, they should feel better about drawing,” Thelen said. “Their drawing skills should improve.”
One student who has produced some very creative work so far this month is seventh grader Stephanie Lizarde. She is enjoying creating work on a daily basis, oftentimes spending hours at home working on pieces.
“It helps you get in the habit of drawing,” Lizarde said.
