Imagine the Possibilities is an annual Princeton Day School program made possible through the John D. Wallace, Jr. '78 Memorial Guest Artist Series Fund that brings authors, illustrators, and poets to campus to work directly with students in a variety of ways. The program began in 1996 with the idea of having an artist spend the day on campus and visit classes in the Lower, Middle, and Upper School. Now, twenty-two years later, the program has doubled in size and scope, with multiple artists spending two days each on campus, while engaging in division assembly presentations, classroom workshops, and autographing sessions.
