Westerville North AP Language students celebrated their yearlong arts integration program with the PAGES open-mic celebration at the Wexner Center on May 8. Students worked with local artists Karie Miller, Michael Rene Torres, and Alexis Wilson and explored work by Cindy Sherman, Sam Green & Kronos Quarter, and Raoul Peck’s film about James Baldwin, I am Not Your Negro. English teacher Kim Swensen thanked program developer Dionne Custer Edwards for “supporting our learning and shepherding the publication of our work.”
PAGES is an innovative multidisciplinary program that supports literacy and writing skills through the exploration of contemporary art, film, and performing arts. This free program pairs educators from the Wexner Center with high school teachers from across central Ohio in the planning of writing-based, experiential learning opportunities for students.
