Class Experience

During this course students will discover and write poetry, create prompts, write short stories, discover the joy of comic writing, dabble with autobiographical writing and immerse themselves into a  journey of creativity and imagination. The main goal is to engage students with the written word and discover their own personal success within) the projects we create in and outside of class.. Students will also have an opportunity to summit their best works to the Scholastic Writing Awards.
As a Gold Key and National Sliver key Award winning art educator it is my goal to inspire and instruct! While giving students the tools on how to prepare for the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. I have the experience on a local and national level and would like to give other budding artists and writers this Exciting opportunity. As a published poet, I relish in the excitement and magic that the written word provides.

***Homeschoolers can enter this without being enrolled in a traditional art program, please let me know if you fall under this category and I will assist you in that***
Homework:  Will be assigned weekly and students will get to choose! They will have the option to create one of the following:
Write it! – Write in their chosen fashion. Poetry, short story, or free style!
Illustrate it! – Title it and illustrate their expression.
Cartoon it! – Create their own cartoon on the topic.
*HOMEWORK can be hand written, digital, typed, drawn, painted and printed.*
Students need to have access to a pen/ pencil and paper during class and as far as homework that will be a personal choice as what they will be using.

Formal Assessment and submissions for 1/2 credit. Assessments are on an individual basis.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
