This book is a celebration of the ways in which art and writing can influence and inspire each other. In 1999- 2000, Grace Nichols was the first Writer-in-Residence at the Tate. During this time she worked with children from London schools, helping them respond to art by writing poetry. She herself was inspired to write over 25 memorable and perceptive new poems, collected in this book. In addition, Paint Me a Poem contains Grace's highly personal reflections on the paintings and sculptures, as well as fascinating insights into the inspirations for the paintings, written by Colin Grigg, Head of Young People's programmes at Tate. Included towards the back of the book are many lively activities designed to inspire children to write their own poetry and to have fun with language.
