Writer’s Eye

Dear Parents,

The Writer’s Eye field trip will be on October 12th.  Any student interested in creative writing is encouraged to participate in this event.

For those of you that may be new to our area, every year the UVA Art Museum holds a writing competition open to students and adults.  They pre-select works of art from their current exhibit and provide tours for interested participants.  Students participating in the fieldtrip will go on a docent led tour of the museum where they will select a particular work of art as inspiration for a story or poem.  Guidelines are given to the students for how to go about this during the tour. Your child turns their writing entry into me, and I will make sure these entries get to the museum by the deadline, November 15th.  For more information please see


If your child is interested in participating in this event, they need to stop by room A-4 and pick up a permission form.  The form and bus fee are due to me by October 6th.

Thank you,

Diana McCullough
