The Children's Peace Project: Service-Learning and Art Education
Taylor, Pamela G.
International Education Journal, v6 n5 p581-586 Dec 2005
This paper presents the case of a service-learning art experience in an after-school housing development program. Beginning with a dialogue concerning peace and how it can become part of their world, children and pre-service teachers explored and connected the idea of peace through symbols, metaphor and idealism in works of art. A critical and reflective account of this experience demonstrates the ways that young children and pre-service art teachers can benefit from meaningful and socially relevant service-learning activities.
