WL-S students interested in creative writing and artistic expression completed the creative arts experience, Pages, provided by The Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio. Pages: Art & Writing is a multi-disciplinary program that supports literacy and writing skills through the exploration of contemporary art, film, and performing arts. This program is free for students and pairs educators and artists from the Wexner Center with high school teachers from across central Ohio in the planning of writing-based experiential learning opportunities.
High School English students use their lunch and homeroom times attending workshops and working on their own creative projects throughout the first half of the school year. Workshops included a visual arts, media arts, and performing arts experience. While at the Wexner Center for the Arts they spent the morning touring exhibitions by Hope Ginsburg, Sa’dia Rehman, and A.K. Burns. Poet Laureate Kari Gunter-Seymour and Sarah Robison led the morning workshop sessions.
Students have the opportunity to have their work published in the Pages Anthology that will be released this May. This experience allows our students to explore their creativity outside of the typical class setting and work with national and globally recognized artists.
