Art education is
 the vehicle for
the development
  of a culture of
      peace
The artist must respond to the
community in which he or she lives
Youth artists
 connect through
 expressing what
  they want, not
what they are told
The peer group working
    together in the
community is extremely
       powerful
Belonging and
 friendships create
meaning and vitality
Hard work, risk taking and challenges are necessary to overcome obstacles
                            and for succeeding
Patience, tolerance
and respect of each
other are essential
skills
Each individual
     has a
uniqueness to
  add to the
    whole
But learning to
work in teams
makes the job
easier
No-one can paint
  Johnnies art
 except Johnnie
