ACHF Arts Education
Students acquire demonstrable skills in multiple creative processes, creating poetry and art and then binding their work into a finished book. Our teachers write narrative assessments of the transformative effects of the process, and students will complete both narrative assessments and more quantitative-style surveys of their experience.

K-5 students will collaborate with poets, artists, and bookmakers, to document their original stories by engaging in a multimodal process. Students become authors and illustrators, creating a striking object celebrating their images and words.
