Do you have a good graphics program--e.g. Painter Classic? Get your art teachers, creative writing
teachers, math and science--all your teachers!-- involved in making an
on-line gallery--illustrated stories, art work, reports, etc.

Another option would be round robin art work--
--one person starts it, sends (or posts it) and the next person modifies it;
-- or takes a fragment and and creates a new painting;
--or adds a connecting segment for one of the 4 sides--eventually you'll
have a 9 segment painting which can of course be still more extended by
putting each new segment in a borderless table. (set a size limit--not too
big! and any other appropriate guidelines...)

The same process can be used for creative writing where each segment must
end with the protagonist having to make a decision. This eventually becomes
a choose your own ending kind of thing.
