The North Shore studio’s poetry group proudly unveils their newly minted poetry book The Art of Words. Rich in language and artwork, the book features 15 poems accompanied by original works made by studio artists.

“When you think about it that’s what it’s all about—pushing boundaries.” -Ted Gram Boarini

The poetry group, led by long-time volunteer Cindy Shanker, worked together weekly to select artwork to base their poems on. They then worked collaboratively to craft each original poem and select the most poignant works to feature in their book.
