The Walt Whitman Birth Center frequently holds interesting art exhibits and poetry readings, and has a beautiful courtyard that’s a great place to grab a break.

Lighthouses hold such rich history, especially here in the Northeast.

Oakwood art teacher Ms. Noreen Erickson had an especially fun time teaching our young artists how to create waves crashing on the rocky shore.

Second-grade students at the Oakwood Primary Center created lighthouse collages during art class.  Some of them were on display at the Walt Whitman Birth Center for a kindergarten through eighth grade exhibition.  Students learned how to use tissue paper to create these unique collages using warm and cool colors.  The children had a wonderful time creating them.  It was very nice that the community got to see their artistic work first hand.
