In case you didn’t know, yesterday was International Peace Day.  I’ve known about it for some time and as a result, worked to plan an activity with my art teacher to support having our students focus on peace and what it means.  Our students are bombarded with so many stories about unrest across the world, that I thought it would be a great opportunity for them to create some positive images of peace and what they thought it would look like.  The artwork has been great, and the next step of the project is to create post cards and stationary with the art on it, have students write letters of peace, and then randomly place the letters around greater Boston to promote their thinking and peace across the greater community.  The image with the blog post is just one of almost 500 works of art promoting peace.  Such a great message!  #peace #fiskeschool @fiskeschool #art #diversity
