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 http://www.CreatePeaceProject.org 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.
