Reading a book has become a very creative experience in a number of Twin Cities Metro Area schools, due to a special program that received funding from the Minnesota State Arts Board Arts Learning Program.
Marine 4th and 5th grade classes with Tracy Kempenich and Chris Getchell are participating in Read, Explore, Create (REC) this year! Read, Explore, Create is a partnership between Milkweed Editions, a publisher of books for youth and adults; COMPAS, which brings artists into schools and Watershed Wisdom, a watershed education program for 5th and 6th grades in the St. Croix Watershed. Through REC, students read a Milkweed book, meet with the book’s author in-person or via a live web chat and explore the book’s themes through arts and science residencies. Learn more!
