Celebrate International Peace Day On September 21
Heal with HeARTS will host the second annual International Peace Day at Murray-LaSaine Elementary on Thursday, September 21, at 9:30 a.m.
The United Nations established this day to celebrate peace around the world, and the central premise is The Golden Rule, which is the universal law of peace and empathy. Cultures around the world have their own reading of The Golden Rule. In American Christianity, this idea is communicated as, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you and love thy neighbor as thyself."
Heal with HeARTS will work with Murray-LaSaine students to define what peace is and to guide them as they express themselves through artworks, writings, and songs about peace.
During last year's International Peace Day, students from Murray-LaSaine created a human peace sign on the campus. David Keller captured the event via drone, and his video is featured below.
This project is funded in part by the City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs and the City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Program through their joint administration of the Lowcountry Quarterly Arts Grant Program and the South Carolina Arts Commission which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the John and Susan Bennett Memorial Arts Fund of the Coastal Community Foundation of SC.
Students Create And Display Mandalas At Murray-LaSaine
Heal with HeARTS recently hosted a student art show at Murray-LaSaine Elementary. The event taught the children about the history and symbolism of the mandala, which represents "wholeness." Students created their own mandalas with acrylic paints illustrating air, fire, earth, and water. A family night reception was held to showcase the students' work. Examples of mandalas created by students are displayed below.
