Our current project is called the 1,000 Journals Project. So if you ever receive one of these journals (which hopefully, you will) get excited and get creative because you are about to make history. Here are the instructions for each journal:
If you are reading this, then you have been chosen (by the person who
gave this to you) to participate in a project that will unify the world a little
more through art. This journal is the first of many that are being sent out
into the world. Each of you that get it can create whatever you want on a page
or two or three in the journal: a collage, stickers, photographs, poetry, graffiti,
whatever you want to do to express yourself and your thoughts on the world. Please include the city, state, or country in which you live and your age.
After you are finished adding a little bit of yourself to the journal,
pass it along to a friend, a neighbor, a sister, a grandparent, a child,
a cousin in another state or country-to anyone you can think of.
If you do not wish to pass it on, send it to the P.O. box address
at the back of this journal. If you have just completed the final page
in the journal, PLEASE return it to the P.O. box address. Whether it is
one year in the future, or twenty years, please RETURN IT. As members of the
National Art Honor Society in California (based at Dos Pueblos High School), we want to exhibit these journals to show our peers how people of all ages around the world are expressing themselves through art when given the opportunity. Hopefully, throughout this process, you will learn a little something about yourself and your fellow men that share your world.
Thank you, and enjoy.
