Family Friday – Picturing Peace

This very special Family Friday focuses on our theme of peace.

The Picturing Peace Arts Project features peace-themed artwork by area students on display until January 31, 2020. Join us for an evening of peace-themed activities with your family and meet The Picturing Peace Arts Project founders Drs. Robert and Jill Beck.

Picturing Peace is an arts program that has been conducted in 21 elementary school classrooms in the U.S. and Northern Ireland. The goal is the development of peace-loving students and emerging peace-building citizens.

Picturing Peace has now happily arrived at KidsPlay.

Come and create your own peaceful photographs with your family.

Choose from a variety of activities to cultivate a peaceful mindset with your family and community!
