Journal of Inquiry and Action in Education, v5 n1 p17-40 2012

For students struggling with reading and writing, the visual arts may be a way of accessing and expressing their ideas and ultimately opening up a world of creative possibilities. This article explores drawing and painting as a pre-writing strategy. The article follows 6 third grade students as they participate in a workshop designed to facilitate poetry writing based on the students' artwork.
