Re: Art4Peace - first meaningful topic -Indepentent Projects

Our school learns about a specific Peacemaker Character Trait each month -
this month the theme is Good Judgment - and a boy and girl in each homeroom have
their name announced for exemplifying the trait at our First Friday Mass.
Recently, a group of art students designed a poster for the Peacemaker Project
that depicted a gold cross on a black background. The positive Peacemaker
traits were listed and illustrated on the cross, and negative words (hate, anger,
disrepect, gossip, etc.) were depicted in the black areas. The poster was so
well received that the students have been asked to make a larger, more
permanent version in a quilt format for our new school addition. I'm very proud of
them! Sandy J
