His Way with Words: The Writing Process of Gordon Parks

His Way With Words: The Writing Process of Gordon Parks is an Arts Partners program developed in 2015 with funding from the Ulrich Museum of Art.

Gordon Parks was a master storyteller with his camera, and his words. In this creative writing workshop, high school students will be exposed to the written works of Gordon Parks, learn and practice his creative process, and develop a creative process of their own. Includes a visit to the Gordon Parks exhibit at the Ulrich Museum, a reflection paper, and a creative writing assignment.

Artist: Grant Overstake

"[T]he concepts of self-control, delayed gratification and perseverance are more important now than ever before. Today's youth deserve adults in their lives who will not only teach them these concepts but will model these skills in their daily lives. Mr. Overstake does an amazing job of introducing "Grit" to both students and staff alike. I highly recommend his program to each and every school and staff."
