Kids' Guernica at Shimura Daiichi Elementary School in Tokyo

December 2020, Shimura Daiichi Elementary school in Tokyo challenged Kids’ Guernica to show a huge painting for the school exhibition. 88 students of the sixth grade studied SDGs and decided to show “Happiness, Health, and Peace” in their painting. They thought they will not feel happy without solving racial discrimination and world worming.

They expressed happiness through painting hearts, peace through painting a rainbow, and no racial discrimination through a picture of holding hands. They also added some images of getting rid of Corona virus to wish the end of this pandemic. Many school programs were cancelled due to the pandemic but Kids’ Guernica gave a wonderful memory to them.
