Making Art, Not War at Bowie HS

Tami and I enjoyed being at Bowie HS today during the lunches with our SOY table and materials.  As always, students were very creative with the art supplies, and a number of students took advantage of our military reality fliers, Americorps brochures, the Peace Wheel of Fortune and other info about nonviolent alternatives to war and militarism.  Thanks, Bulldogs!

October SOY table at LBJ/LASA HS

Tami and I appreciated tabling in Jaguar country today.  Thanks to students and staff who came by the table to take literature about military realities and alternatives to military service, learn about peacemakers they may not have known and make some art on the spot.

Fall SOY table at McCallum HS

It was good to be back at McCallum HS today.  As the district's arts magnet school, we enjoyed seeing the student art that was on display as well as the art they made at our table.  We were set up next to the student radio station, which was broadcasting student news during the first lunch.  We appreciated talking with all students and staff who stopped by our table.

SOY table at Lanier HS

Tami and I had a busy lunch hour at Lanier HS today.  Students were very creative with the stenciling materials, stamps and stickers.  Many took literature and tried out the peace wheel.  Thanks, Vikings!
