Art Teacher Nicole James of The Downtown School in Des Moines, Iowa had all 97 students in the 5-6 year-old learning groups work on the Youth Art Peace Pole. Each student was given a small area on the Pole to paint an image of peace. The images came together to create a colorful mosaic around the Peace Pole. The languages chosen for the sides of the Pole are languages taught at the school; Spanish, Japanese, Korean, and English. The students were very excited to work on the Peace Pole and are looking forward to seeing it displayed near their school library.
