Our Mission

Periaktoi's mission is to produce a journal of art and literature that reflects the diversity of experience and inspiring talent present in the Baylor community. Art and literature provide unique value to our community and serve as a vehicle for expressing the inexpressible, for exploring human experience in all its varied dimensions. In recognition of this value, Periaktoi seeks to promote access and expand interest in the arts at Baylor, while providing a forum for artists, musicians and writers to showcase their work to the broader community.

8th graders learn about street art and are particularly inspired by the mysterious London based artist known as Banksy. Employing his techniques, students craft a stencil and use spray paint to highlight a social issue that has a particular importance to them. The topics often include controversial issues such as pollution, body image, and sexual orientation.

Middle School

In the sixth grade students' first project, they use charcoal to create a gradient change and a sense of space. Then, studying 18th century French engravings, they are challenged to draw insects accurately and with as many details as possible. They then write a haiku about their piece in their English class which they then have to incorporate into the composition.
