Arts@theIntersection Poetry Workshop with St. George School

Thanks to Art Bridges, Arts@theIntersection was able to bring poet Claire Millikin to St. George School and Christine Miller’s 6th grade ELA classroom for a unique creative writing poetry workshop. Inspired by Marsden Hartley’s painting “Give Us This Day,” students embarked on an expressive journey, exploring the powerful connection between art and poetry. Drawing inspiration from their own lives and experiences living by the ocean, they crafted personal verses following a tour of the Farnsworth exhibition, Marsden Hartley & the Sea.

This partnership workshop with St. George School exemplifies Arts@theIntersection’s core mission. By connecting artists and writers like Claire directly with our partner classrooms and educators, we work together to foster a deeper appreciation for the ways that art can activate creative writing and expression.
