Our mission is to connect youth to the arts by way of professional artists of all disciplines in order to encourage peace and healing through the arts. In this expressive learning environment, we integrate concepts in conflict resolution into our art projects and develop real Peacemakers in the process.
We integrate elements of music, poetry, painting, theater, dance, sculpting, and cooking into our activities to stimulate the children and help them express themselves, as well as retain our general message of peace and cooperation. Our activities focus on creativity, stress relief, community building, health, and conflict resolution. We encourage the children to avoid violent conflict by defusing the situation or seeking mediation. This is accomplished by using creative conflict resolution as a consistent theme in our projects. Our programs foster an open creative atmosphere complimented by professional instruction and guidance. Meaningful art projects are central to our mission.
