International Week opened with an “Art Happening” featuring 6th Graders working together to create Peace Mandalas. The combination of students actively creating socially conscious art on the blacktop during the course of the school day, exemplifies SDAFS mission to enable “unique multicultural experience that forges open-minded citizens”. This sui generis project includes 2 (30”x 30”) oil pastel on wood with an additional 18” x 18” Eiffel Tower Peace Sign- decoupaged with the word “Peace” in over a hundred languages. “Feel the Love” of these young Peace Creators whenever you look at their inspiring art!
The workshop was conducted by artist Sonja Donahue.
