Art for Peace Camp
Join teachers Jane and Julie for a Spring Break art camp to lift spirits and learn how each of us can promote peace in small, yet meaningful ways in our everyday lives.
We'll learn how to fold origami cranes, a symbol of peace and long life, and the story of Sadako Sasaki, a young Japanese girl who survived the bombing of Hiroshima during WW2.
The tradition of Tibetan Prayer Flags and their meanings will inspire us to design our own, and we'll make our own "wish tree", inspired by a project started by artist Yoko Ono that has traveled the world for years to collect people's wishes for peace. Other projects will include a "Random Acts of Kindness" calendar, Guatemalan worry dolls, mandalas, and our own interpretations on canvas of what peace means to us.
