Master Peace is an innovative school-based program using art as a vehicle to challenge youth to work together, create life-affirming artworks, and communicate positive messages to their schools and communities.
Master Peace is based on the belief that through collaborative public art projects, youth can learn to value diversity, resolve conflicts, strengthen self-esteem, increase respect for others, and create pro-social bonds.
Through an innovative process that fosters school-wide dialogue, interaction, and growth, youth build important life skills in decision making, problem solving, and conflict resolution, enabling them to better cope with problems in a constructive and productive manner. They bond with each other, with their school and with their community.
The program is designed to address the diverse issues and concerns facing today’s youth, to be a blueprint for students and their communities to Master Peace.
