Kids’ responses to fun writing prompts

This past weekend, the Loft and the Minnesota Center for Book Arts hosted a fun event for all of the Combo Classes we’ve held this summer. In Combo Classes, students start the day upstairs at the Loft, working on their creative writing, then go downstairs to MCBA to create book art. This year, for the first time ever, students had the unique and exciting opportunity to display their book art in the gallery here at Open Book. We held a reception to celebrate.

Visit the Loft’s Facebook page for pictures of the reception.

For a fun activity at the reception, we handed out writing prompts. A few student artists were brave enough to share what they came up with.

Many thanks to Figment.com. We adapted the prompts slightly from their Daily Themes.
