Take Two Academy students are showcasing their work in the fine arts through a keepsake book titled "Apple Pie."

About 30 students from Take Two's middle school and high school programs have submitted drawings, poems and short stories to art teacher John Swoboda who came up with the idea.

Swoboda did a similar project of student-submitted work while a student at Southeastern Oklahoma State University called "Green Eggs and Hamlet."

"I thought it would give kids something to be proud of and give seniors something to hold onto," he said. "In alternative education, there is sometimes a challenge to build a sense of community, but this is something everyone can get behind and makes us a community."

The name "Apple Pie" was voted on by the students. It will be printed and bound for students to have.

"It will be a funny book to buy," Cannon McCall said.

The junior submitted two drawings, a poem and a story to the project. His favorite piece was an abstract drawing that featured the words "Take Two."

"It's my favorite because I like that kind of art," McCall said. "You get to show everyone else views of art and expand the way they think."

McCall is hoping the art book project becomes an annual project for his classes.
