Picturing Writing: Fostering Literacy Through Art®
Image-Making Within The Writing Process®
Engaging hands, hearts & minds: Creating passionate young readers and writers.
Picturing Writing: Fostering Literacy Through Art® and Image-Making Within The Writing Process® are two innovative approaches to teaching writing and fostering literacy designed to meet the needs of a wide range of learners. Developed by Beth Olshansky, these evidence-based models use quality picture books and simple, captivating art techniques to teach the art of writing. Immersed in a rigorous creative process during Artists/Writers Workshop, students create their own quality picture books aligned with grade-level standards and curriculum. They learn to read like a writer and see like an artist.
I just don’t know what happens. Whenever I go to Artists/Writers Workshop, all sorts of good stuff just pops into my head. – Chris, grade 1
