Songs are Poems too


In anticipation of our celebration of the power of poetry, song and autism, we wanted to share part of the creativity we are celebrating. Brian Laidlaw recorded these original songs that were written by students of Unlocking Potential, our creative writing course held in August 2017 and made possible through an Arts Learning grant through the Minnesota State Arts Board. The tunes may be a bit familiar, but the words are all unique.

We hope you enjoy listening to them as much as we enjoyed creating them.

  1. Bullet Ants Blues by Max

2. The Poly Ticks Blood Sucking Creature Blues by the group

3. Ring of Ice by James
