Freshman Maggie Stencovage created a bright, floral design for her visual journal. Students in Miss Lindsey Boncore's art classes design and make the journals themselves. "My favorite part was being able to make our own designs instead of an assigned one." Stencovage said "This gave us the opportunity to show our creativity.”

In Miss Lindsey Boncore’s art classes, one of the first assignments is the Visual Journal. Students create and design their own notebooks/journals to draw warm ups, prompts, and sketches for future projects in the class. They’re allowed to draw whatever they want on the front and backs of their journal. Students also have to make  their journals together.
