Kendra Fleischman, Visual Arts Educator wrote: “The 7th and 8th grade students at Denver School of the Arts began the process of creating their peace pole by reflecting on what peace looks like, and how an artist could express this in a pole or totem.  They each designed a pole and then critiqued each design.  As a group, they selected several designs that could be incorporated into a totem pole made of ceramic, slab built sections.  They formed teams of 3 – 4 students and began creating their pieces.  In addition to conveying the idea of peace, they had to consider their design and how it their section would add to the overall finished design. The collaborative process of creating their peace pole was a lesson in keeping the peace as well!”

We can’t wait to see the finished product, check back.
