During the last weeks of the 1998-99 school year, Master Peace will create collaborative art projects with students in four Miami-Dade County elementary schools.  Students will be working with Miami artist Xavier Cortada and using Internet technology in the development of these collaborative murals for their schools. 

Each school will have a discussion forum and student web gallery capturing the words and images that contributed to the murals' creation.  Please click on the hyperlinks below to access each school's project webpage
