For my elementary classes NOTHING leaves the art room until the last day of
school or I never see it again. I have each student keep a portfolio (18x24"
tagboard folded in half, taped on one edge, name and grade at top) which I
keep in the artroom. They keep all projects in them, including sketchbooks.
