Congratulations to the following OHHS Painting and Mixed Media students who were recently selected to exhibit as a part of the Young Artists (Children/Youth) responses to the SOS ART Retrospective (2016-2020) Exhibition:
SOS ART’s Mission is to promote, encourage and provide venues for the arts as vehicles for Peace and Justice and for a Better World. A major educational goal of SOS ART is to engage children/youth in the process by exposing them to issues of peace and justice, informing them, triggering their thinking and involving them in a dialogue about the issues. The purpose is to help introduce and internalize values of peace and justice in children/youth through the arts. The arts will serve as a starting point to discuss such issues and also as a way to actively engage children/youth through their own creative process in addressing them.
SOS ART used the opportunity of the ongoing SOS ART Retrospective exhibit with all its included messages on peace and justice by 90 artists to engage children/youth to actively take a part in it and add their voice to it. Children/youth were offered 3 art-related activities to engage in while visiting the exhibit in person or remotely from the comfort of their home. For those who were interested, the product of their art activities is being shared here in this online gallery. Our hope is that they will help continue the dialogue and reflection.
