creating a blank graph with room for hand written tick labels.

I am writing a final exam and I want my students to sketch a graph of
something and label the plot themselves. So, I need to create an axis
with x and y labels, but with no tick marks. This I can do, but

creating blank tick marks seems to get rid of the space where the
students would write in their own tick marks.

A quick hack would be to make non-blank tick marks but cause them to
be invisible in another way, e.g. by setting alpha=0 or color='w':

yticks(arange(-5,5.2),['0']*10,alpha=0)
xticks(arange(1,10),['0']*10,alpha=0)
