During the 2019-2020 school year, and in the fall of the 2020-2021 school year, Mary M Bethune students developed their creative writing skills and their confidence with teaching artist, Cynthia Larsen. This program was made possible by a grant from the Ohio Arts Council.

    In addition to their teachers and Ms. Larsen, students were supported by volunteers from John Carroll University.


    Below you will see this dynamic learning in action and see some examples of our work.
