Campbellsville Middle School art students recently wrote their own haikus and then illustrated them.
In Jo Ann Harris’s art class, students wrote their own haikus, which are three-line poems that don’t always rhyme.
The first and last lines must have five syllables, and the second line has seven.
Most of the students’ haikus were about nature or what they enjoy doing outside.
To illustrate their haikus, students learned about how scrolls were used at celebrations and to create historical documents.
After their poems were finished, students illustrated them on their own scrolls.
