More than 120 students in kindergarten through eighth grade became artful ambassadors for peace Sept. 25 on Chalk4Peace Day at The Gooden School in Sierra Madre.
The children used chalk as their medium and pavement as their canvas as they created artworks reflecting their visions of peace for themselves, others and the world. “Peace fells like a warm hug,” said a third-grader. “Peace sounds like sizzling bacon,” said another student. Beginning as a single event in Arlington, Virginia, in 2003, Chalk4Peace has grown into a multitude of events in cities throughout the U.S. and the world. www.chalk4peace.org.
Founded in 1975, The Gooden School is an independent Episcopal school, K-8, where academics and the arts come together. Open houses and orientation sessions will be held on Oct. 14, Nov. 5 and 15, Dec. 9 and Jan. 10. For more information visit www.goodenschool.org, or call (626) 355-2410.
