Students are exploring how the written word and art can become one cohesive piece as they also express their thoughts, questions and ideas about life. Does it get any better than that?

B, they design the entries as a reflection of who they are, their experiences, their thoughts and questions, now it becomes personal and that my friend, is grand.
