The Create Peace Art Festival 2011 features visual art contributions from youth that reflect the theme: Create Peace. Last year we received about 60 contributions and were honored that the Mayor of Pasadena served as the emcee for the event.
MetaFour Productions is set to conduct sessions at schools or after-school programs where we will guide students in how to create peace-themed art. We are also looking for peace-related submissions produced by students independent of the MetaFour classes. We’ll pick up and return any pieces that you would like to enter. The first 20 teachers who submit a minimum of five entries will receive an Art for Peace Toolkit consisting of art materials and art lessons that are related to conflict resolution. The Create Peace Art Festival will be held at the Western Justice Center, 55 S. Grand Ave, Pasadena 91105 on Sunday, June 5, 2011 from 2:00 - 5:00. Please plan to join us for this meaningful celebration of youth exploring the creation of peace through art.
All are welcome!
