We're thrilled to be a part of the educational process.
In Own The Board's follow-up piece, Poetry Boxes Spark Cross-Curricular Connections: Q & A With Educator Ida Galash, Laura Keigan focuses on Poetry Boxes in Portland schools, and the educational value they bring to students. An interview with visual arts instructor Ida Galash explores the cross-disciplinary aspects of poetry.
Galash, who teaches at the Madeliene School, installed one of our Poetry Boxes and says having the box:
"can enhance self-esteem, generate conversations, nurture an interest in or even love of poetry, and encourage kids and adults alike to pause a moment to enjoy a bit of creativity."
About us, she adds:
"I am fortunate to have selected David of Poetry Boxes to make and install our box; as the artist and craftsman, he wants to make sure the box is in top condition."
