Día de la Paz

peace day art  Every year at my school on the anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s death we celebrate the day of non-violence and peace. Last year every class contributed to the peace garden and made peace murals. This year we paid tribute to Nelson Mandela.

The artwork will remain up for the rest of the year.  I painted the green Nelson; it was a lot harder than I thought it would be. Whenever I walk down this stairwell I smile, you just can’t help it when you see the little first graders portraits of Nelson Mandela.
