The goal of Metro Arts’ Peace Day is to celebrate peace and the unity of our small arts community. This is accomplished through hands-on art making, thoughtful open discussions and student performances. Metro Arts students custom printed their own t-shirts with a Peace Day image design created by a Metro Student. All students and faculty are encouraged to wear white this day.
Our Student Council organized a full day of activities in collaboration with their teachers. Here are some of the activities in which students had an opportunity to participate.
Creating cyanotype butterflies
Mental health writing activity and discussion
Folding origami peace cranes
Mr. Rogers documentary and discussion
Jewelry making and friendship bracelets
World films and discussion
The chemistry of giant bubbles
