The Art for Peace Project @ MAST
The Art for Peace project is an ongoing international project. Students are given a particular class in another country to send pictures to, and they receive art in return.
At the Marine Academy of Science and Technology (MAST), Sra. DeLuca's students were assigned three classes to contact in France, Finland, and Japan. They created drawings that represented peace in some way and sent them to the classes overseas. They also wrote letters to the heads of state in those countries. Some of Mlle. Lepis' students participated as well, since one class contact was in France.
We were thrilled to receive an answer this week from Jacques Chirac, the president of France! He thanked us for our message of peace and goodwill, and sent us his wishes for a happy new year. We are still waiting to hear from the other countries, so we'll keep you posted!
