Poetry promotes literacy and lets us express our feelings and emotions. It is rhythm and music, so it fosters emotional resilience. Poetry allows students to paint sketches of their lives, to freely show their emotions. On the other hand, art provides students opportunities to learn words, develop motor abilities and critical thinking skills. By combining poetry and art we are providing our students with a great chance to foster not only curricular competences, but also to build their personality.
