Pages: Art & Writing

High school students participating in several Pages activities at the Wexner Center

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 and artists from the Wexner Center with high school teachers from across central Ohio in the planning of writing-based experiential learning opportunities for students. Pages students visit the center to experience gallery exhibitions, a performance, and a film and respond to those experiences in writing.

Students also have the opportunity to publish their writing or artwork in a book produced by the Wexner Center; as well as the opportunity to participate in an end-of-year open mic reading at the Wexner Center.

"Dionne and the Pages program make a difference in students’ lives…If possible, I would have all of my students involved."
