The Second Kids' Guernica at Kitakawasoe Elementary School, Japan

January 04, 2019   The second Kids’ Guernica painting was created by the sixth grade pupils of Kitakawasoe Elementary School in Saga-city, Japan last year. They appreciated the first Kids’ Guernica painting of their school. Then, they decided to make their own Kids’ Guernica to show many people to express the importance of peace and the tragedy of war. Each of them gave his/her own idea of their peace painting and discussed in detail to realize their images. They committed themselves to complete the painting. After finishing it, it was displayed at their school gym to show many people.
