Thousand Words Project

The THOUSAND WORDS PROJECT is a new, exciting set of educational tools that use artwork to improve writing skills. With TWP, students learn how artists create and apply these strategies to their own writing.  By following these lessons and activities, teachers can inspire their students to pay attention to what they see, reflect on it, express their ideas in writing and even propel these skills across subject areas into daily life.
