Banners for Peace is a ten – week painting workshop where a group of students work together to design, develop, and paint simple uplifting slogan, and the accompanying mural, on a giant canvas (up to 10 x 20 ft in size). The finished mural is then displayed in the school as an inspirational art piece. This workshop is designed for students in 4th – 12th grade. In the past three years, we have facilitated this collaborative arts project more than 25 times in Bay Area schools.

How it Works:

  • The Banners for Peace workshop is a collaborative arts initiative inviting schools to organize a group of students to participate in the painting of a giant work of art with a simple up-lifting slogan and unique design.
  • Banner painting workshops meet for 60-90-minute sessions, one day a week, for eight-ten weeks as either an after-school program, or in conjunction with an existing art class. (workshop length, size, and duration can all be modified to meet specific needs)
  • These workshops provide a group of students the opportunity to work together to design, decorate, and paint a banner to reflect their voice and vision for peace.
