Cypress Singing Tree of Peace

When Everett Middle School of SF lost one of its students more than ten years ago, it inaugurated a Peace Studies program. The project demonstrates innovation, collaboration education based on making a real product for a real audience that has a real impact to deeply engage students. This year, Ross Holzman of the CreatePeaceProject joined Unity Through Creativity to create the 16th Singing Tree mural - the Cypress Singing Tree of Peace - with 350 middle school students - helping support the peace culture. Go to to see how you can educate, innovate and collaborate with divided groups by using mural painting and adding to an international Forest of Singing Trees.
