Students in Westerman's session were learning to turn sights and sounds into poetry. The students sat in silence outside in the park, then jotted down words with the goal of moving beyond a literal description of the experience into using poetic language to describe it.
The students ended each of the two days with a walk in the state park. The first day's walk was with park naturalists describing the history and nature of the park. Boada, Westerman and Wasicuna led the walk on the second day from the Dakota perspective, telling the stories of the park that included the internment camp of more than 1,600 Dakota during the Dakota War of 1862 and the confluence of the Mississippi and Minnesota rivers, where the Dakota believe their creation took place.

But having students complete the sessions in a classroom felt disjointed and was missing the feeling of a place sacred to the Dakota that the teachers felt. ArtStart hadn't done the program in the state park with a secondary school before, and so they worked to narrow the two weeks the teachers had completed into three sessions for the inaugural seminar.
