Art and Creative writing can often tie into the same thing, which is what makes it so important and a huge role this school year at the Red Lion Area Senior High School.
“This program is about matching our creative artists visually with our creative artists literally.” Art teacher Mr. Hopkins said when asked what the goal of the project was.
The creative writing students later decide which of the pieces best represents what they are trying to write about. “I don’t want them to know who the writer is because I don’t want that to influence their creative process,” Hopkins added.
The end product of the collaboration will be either an online flip book or a website dedicated to the artists. Mr. Hopkins hopes to allow more access to the sites so that more people district wide can see it and appreciate the hard work put into the pieces. This project is a great way for each group to learn how to create their art better, whether their art is words or pictures.
Students select their stories at random by picking cards out of a hat. Multiple artists get the same piece, which benefits the writer because they are able to see how people interpret their story in different ways. The creative writing students decide later on which of the pieces best represents what they were trying to write about.
“I don’t want them to know who the writer is because I don’t want that to influence their creative process,” Hopkins said. Sophomore Hannah Andrews is painting a forest because it’s the setting and a big part of her story. Others, such as Senior Raquan Mitchell, are creating a piece involving things that were key parts in their story.
This is the fourth year the two classes have worked on the project together, “I’ve been doing this for four years, and former students have said they enjoyed this project,” Mr. Hopkins said.
