Mr Frazer's 4th & 5th Grade Class
Point Arena Elementary School

Collage & Poetry Workshop

A joint effort between artist Blake More and teacher Scott Frazer, our Project, "Seeing Our Words, Expressing Ourselves" used collage as an evocative medium to bring forth the written poetry of 4th & 5th grade students at Point Arena Elementary School. When joined, art and poetry make up the blood and bones of creative life. Few things bring as much joy as the engagement of hands and mind in creative expression. We enjoyed inspiring students to reach new levels of creativity while also encouraging them to write, as well as bring the immediacy of real feelings and heart-felt expression into the learning environment. This project was made possible thanks to the generous contribution of the California Arts Council, Gualala Arts In the Schools, and of course, the Arts in the Schools project coordinator Susan Avant.


The following is an exhibition of the student's collage and poetry...
of which, the wonderful, creative students of Mr Frazer should
be very proud of their work!

Sunset wind
in my face
windy clouds
top down
Corvette, 4 speed
2 miles in two minutes
cloudy low
140 miles per hour
down the road
I feel free as a bee

---Spencer Langwell



This poem is about


wolves that float in the sky

wolves that eat what ever

they can find

wolves that live on mars

wolves that have dogs for cousins

wolves are like thunder and lightning

wolves live on all the planets

they can do anything

            ---Samantha Allen



yellow and cool
goes 222 MPH

like a comet

Honda motorcycle
red, jumps high
off a ramp like an asteroid

Mercedes sports car
blue, cool like abalone shells

army tank
slow, firing
only 100 MPH
like a snail

four door sedan
fast, 210 MPH
silver rims
shiny bright headlights
like the afternoon sun

---Arnesto Poe

Bad Boys

I have seven quads

on my cobra

I have water

I see a motor

I see drag racing


and a motorcycle


           ---Justin Lombardo


Cat Walk

A cat wanders the sky

like a cloud

as the thunder comes

the cat comes down



down with a big plop

on the ground

as Samantha comes out of the house

to play on the swings

amd say to the cat, bow wow


---Geneva Carr

Lazy Man

Lazy man
skull in hand
sitting on Venus
quick as a rabbit
slick as a snake
drinking Russian vodka
like a stake    

            ---Justin Free

Bad Boys

I drive cars

have a girlfriend

have V/O engines

and four wheelers

I have a corvette

I have fire on my bike

I have everything I want


---DJ Egger
