It Starts With a Dot

Gibbes Museum of Art “It Starts With a Dot”

The Gibbes Museum of Art will continue “It Starts With a Dot” at St. John’s High School during the 2019 – 2020 school year. The program, which encourages literacy and creative expression, was begun in 2017 as a pilot project funded by Arts, etc. and is a collaborative effort between the Gibbes Museum of Art and the College of Charleston creative writing Master’s program. Funding will support outreach to more than 300 St. John’s High School students, and the program will include museum visits, a published anthology of the students’ creative writing and original artwork as well as a student art/creative writing show at the Gibbes. The program will expand within St. John’s to include other disciplines such as science, history and music.
