The Power of the Reckless Sleepter Author:Maureen Hurley Maureen Hurley writes: — "I am a visual artist as well as a poet. As I began to synthesize the two art forms, I was able to take students from a drawing class and ask them to write poetry and they produced high caliber work as if they had been writing all along. The same was true with the writing classes: they were able to draw better." — "The st... more »udents in the Mark West District have been very fortunate to work under the tutelage of poet-artist Maureen Hurley during her three-year California Arts Council residency. The children have had the opportunity to write and illustrate their poetry, participate in art shows, go on field trips, and to meet many other poets, writers and guest artists. They have written and published three books.
This book represents the creative talents of the students of Mark West/San Miguel as they share their imaginative dreams and ideas."
