After sketching local landmarks, and composing
poetry about them, students see their neighborhood in a whole new way.
As one student said, "Our school bus always drove past these places,
and I never paid much attention to them. But now when I see the
10th Street Bridge, or the Equitable Gas clock, or the South Side
Market House, I see them as places worth saving, full of history and value."
Students completed this work as part of
and Art of South Side Landmarks field trip.
