Bridgehampton eleventh and twelfth grade students attended a full-day poetry writing workshop at the Watermill Center recently. The third annual event was led by English teacher Mr. Tom House. The students toured the Center and listened to an introduction of its history and programs before selecting one of hundreds of fascinating objects from around the world in the Center’s archives room to write ekphrastic poems – poems that take art or objects as their subject or inspiration. Students shared their impressive work at the end of the day in an enlightening and lively round-circle slam. The Bridgehampton School is grateful to the Watermill Center for continuing to host this exciting program as well as to Mr. House and art teacher Ms. Robin Gianis who served as a chaperone on the visit.
