Student Artwork and Statements
In 2018, Alex Uvari Graphic Design Teacher at Nordhoff High School, took the challenge to his students and they created 35 art expression to bring greater peace to our planet, world population, and to our lives here at home in Ojai. Please take your time and acknowledge that this art project plants seeds of peace and creative action, to uplift our future generations of leaders. Thanks to all the students who participated in this project.
In 2016 in preparation for International Day of Peace, September 21st, Michael Swank, “Introduction to Graphic Arts” teacher at Ojai, California’s Matilija Junior High and Nordhoff Senior High set out an assignment for International Day of Peace to his students. We are grateful for their response and we will share them here. Thanks to Sylvie Lee for making the connection with Michael happen.
Proposal: On September 21st there will be an all day event to celebrate International Day of Peace. Ojai is one of 140 cities around the globe that has been named an International City of Peace. The city is asking our class to participate in bringing the youth voice into this beautiful celebration and share your vision.
