Master Peace Project
During May and June 1999, Palmetto Elementary School students will be working with Miami artist Xavier Cortada and using Internet technology to help create a collaborative art project for their school. They will exhibit their individual drawings in the web gallery, and they will post their comments in a discussion forum.
The art project's theme is "Take Pride." Students in Ms. Pat Cummins' art classes and the school art club will depict those things that make their students, teachers and parents take pride in their school. This exploration serves to solidify the bond with their school and community.
