Art inspires Art…

8th grade students from Port Townsend’s Blue Heron Middle School in Mrs. Melinda Schroeder’s Language Arts class wrote poetry inspired by the artwork in Olympic ESD 114’s 2023 High School Art Show. We are honored to publish these poetic works, paired with the art that inspired them, for you to enjoy.
