In May, the After Schoolers took part in the Global Art Project for Peace, creating a whopping 40 ornaments to send to art students in El Salvador, accompanied by pictures and letters.
In our last blog post about the GAPP, we were able to get some fantastic pictures of our ornaments before we packed them up to be sent to Central America. And now, after a few months of waiting, the package from the Salvadoran art students has arrived here in Oak Park! Check out these colorful painted rocks they sent. Turns out, the Salvadoran art students love to use glitter as much as our students do!
