Dream Chasers is a publication of paintings and creative writing that came out of a collaboration between Mr. Jordan’s 7th grade Literature class at Detroit Community School and the University of Michigan Students in Detroit Connections: Design Collaboration.
Watercolors and creative writing by 7th graders at Detroit Community School were inspired by prompts and guidance provided by University of Michigan students, who compiled selected work from the project into a publication – with design input and feedback from the 7th graders. On the last day, everyone took home a copy.
“During our time together, we explored the power of watercolors and writing to evoke emotion and tell stories while exchanging our dreams and talents. It was wonderful to see the inspiring, funny, beautifully-crafted paintings and paragraphs that resulted.”
