Global Art Project for Peace

The Global Art Project is an International Art Exchange for Peace. My students and I participated in the 2010 exchange. We created works of art in many different mediums that expressed our view of global peace and goodwill. This was a good project for many of my students. It sparked numerous discussions about what peace really means.  For my younger students we spent several class periods talking about how each one of us could help create global peace everyday in the way we interact with our friends and classmates and people we meet as we go about our business.  Our work was exchanged with a small starter private school in Tuscon Arizona. The mission of the Global Art Project is to joyously create a culture of peace through art. The Project spreads world peace by promoting tolerance and non-violence. The Global Art Project is an expression of the idea: We Are All One.

On May 21st from 4:00 to 6:30 PM Artworks Studio will host our Annual Art Show. This show is OPEN to anyone in the community. The art work we received from Waldorf School will be on display along with my students work.
