What does peace mean to you? That’s what Anna,8; twins Ella, and Mia, 5 tried to convey through paintings.
“I painted the Earth as a peace sign and then put it in space,” said Anna.
“I like rainbows, so did the whole picture in a rainbow then painted a peace sign and pink,” added Mia.
“I painted the peace sign, and I really like sunsets, so I painted a sunset inside,” said Ella.
It’s all part of the Global Art Project for Peace, a world wide initiative encouraging people of all ages to spread peace through art.
Their paintings are on display at the Naperville Art Gallery, and then will be shipped off to Morocco and China, to be displayed there.
“Anytime you incorporate art I just think it’s a wonderful tool for teaching and this is great for the kids to realize there is a universal appeal and a universal voice,” said Executive Director of the Gallery, Debra Venezia.
The art gallery hopes to have their classes participate in the project next year.
