Cascade K8 student work chosen for WITS Anthology

Three kids from Cascade K-8 Community School in Shoreline have been chosen for the annual anthology of student work with Writers In The Schools (WITS) from Seattle Arts & Lectures. 

Cartoonist Greg Stump came to our school once a week for the entire year to teach the art of cartooning. He joined each class (K through 8th) for 3-4 months to work on ideas, drawing, telling a story, etc.

Some of the best work from participating schools around the Puget Sound is submitted at the end of the year by the artists-in-residence. From those submissions, 50 works were chosen to go into the annual student anthology. They will be presented on Sept. 30 at Benaroya Hall at a reading and 'book-signing' party.

The kids in the photo are (L to R): Sonny Iannone (8th), Myles Parent (5th) and Jasper Hinds (5th - my daughter!). Jasper's work was about a character who creates a robot to do his chores so he can go on vacation, and Sonny's cartoon had to do with punctuation. 

WITS has been a part of our school for at least four years and we hope to have Greg back again this year. If you'd like more info about the program and the anthology, there was a good description on Seattle's Child recently.
