Read, Explore, Create at Withrow Elementary

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.

Withrow 5th and 6th grade classes with Robby Hazelroth and Scott Sirek 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 in the St. Croix Watershed.  Through REC, students read a Milkweed book and explore the themes through arts and science residencies.
