PeaceBuilders Chalk Art Activity
We all know that youth learn by working with their hands and as part of a team. Hands-on activities help young people process information. Team work helps expand their knowledge as they discuss ideas with others.

Art projects that focus on building peace are a great way to involve young people in the process: to learn what they know and to see how they feel. Chalk art displays are fun projects that allow children and teens to express themselves and spread a peaceful message.

To conduct this activity, you can divide youth into groups, tape off some squares on the concrete or blacktop, give a few simple instructions to keep the art focused on the theme of peace, and let them get to work! Afterward, you might invite families, community members, district officials, even the media to see the beautiful displays your young people create.

This piece was created by a group of mixed aged youth. They won a prize for "Best Use of Space."

This chalk art display takes PeaceBuilding into outer space. After pledging to build peace at home, at school and in our communities, the universe is a natural progression!

Whether you work with young children or teens, chalk art displays are a great way to get young people working together, talking about what peace means, and finding ways to give meaning to concepts.

A chalk art exhibition is a great way to decorate your site with PeaceBuilders visual cues. It puts young people on a team with a positive mission... and it's easy to clean up!

Why not hold your own chalk art display as a recommitment to building peace in the New Year? Send us your photos and we'll display them along with an article about your site on Check it Out!
