Project Description


The LitLinks Program at West Oakland Community School–created and administered by Children’s Book Press (CBP) of San Francisco–brought in CBP authors to help sixth graders explore the concept of “community” through creative writing, music and fine art projects.

In the workshops, students learned to develop a creative voice and paint pastel self-portraits.  The final project combined video and music. Students wrote and performed original songs that were documented in a school video.
