Kids' Guernica at 1st Primary School of Istiaia in Evia, Greece

May, 2019
We read about the Kids Guernica Art Project 4 months ago and the Parents' Association of 1st Primary School of Istiaia in Evia, Greece decided to organise workshops in order to create a Guernica size painting.
We discussed what peace is and the poem "Peace" written by the famous greek poet Yannis Ritsos in 1953 served as an inspiration. Twenty-two pupils from 5 to 13 yeras old created the painting working together as a team outside the classroom. Painting and talking about peace and how our world can become better was an unforgettable experience for us all!
