If we are made of stories, how might artwork support students as they write about their own lives?

We are the embodiment of our experiences. Drawing from SAAM’s collection of self-taught artists, peel back the layers to discover unique perspectives and experiences. First, consider how your own storytelling might be a powerful tool in your classroom. Then, plan for how your students might use narrative writing to explore the influences that have shaped them.
