Students Spread Peace Through Art


December 17, 2020 -- Continuing to adjust to COVID-19 times, students at Woodward Park Middle School held a virtual art show to spread a message of peace.

“Normally, we would have turned the lobby at school into an art gallery and included our students in band and choir to participate and invited family and friends,” said Assistant Principal Kevin Jackson.

Since that is not possible, the team at Woodward Park created a virtual art show that was shared on YouTube. The link was sent to parents, family, and friends. Visual Arts Teacher Dana said that the students decided to create paper pinwheels and selected the virtual art show’s music.

“Altogether, students built, with their own two hands, a message of unity and peace,” said Stedman. “This art exhibit is exactly what the world needs right now. We should be looking at our children and understanding that we all need to come together in the name of peace.”
