Our Curriculum

S.T.E.A.M. Sessions
(Rising 6th – 8th)

We merge poetry and performance with at least one of the following disciplines during each of our sessions: science, technology, engineering, and math. By focusing on safe, hands-on experiments and allowing students to explore their interests, our learners get to learn about themselves, their passions, as well as the art of poetry.

Spoken Word Sessions
(Ages 14-17)

We use techniques from performance poetry and debate clubs to engage students in contemporary topics, encourage them to research outside of the sophistical pro-con binary, and push them towards truth-seeking and problem-solving. Once student formulate their opinions, they write poetry that is invested in depicting this new perspective.

This project is hosted by The Watering Hole Inspirations Academy and sponsored by South Carolina Arts Commission.
