The students and staff at Hampton High School recently participated in an international art and literacy project, Pinwheels for Peace.
Beginning with the art classes and extending across the curriculum, Hampton High students created pinwheels of all shapes and sizes. On each pinwheel, students wrote their thoughts about "war and peace /tolerance/ living in harmony with others" on one side. On the other side, they decorated the pinwheels to visually express their feelings. The art classes assembled the pinwheels and on the International Day of Peace, they "planted" the pinwheels in the front of the school as a public statement and art exhibit/installation.
Pinwheels for Peace is an art installation project started in 2005 by two art teachers, Ann Ayers and Ellen McMillan, of Coconut Creek, Florida, as a way for students to express their feelings about what’s going on in the world and in their lives. In the first year, groups in over 1,325 locations throughout the world were spinning pinwheels on September 21 - there were approximately 500,000 pinwheels spinning throughout the world. Last year (year 9), 2013, over 4.5 million pinwheels were spinning in over 3,500 locations, including the United States, Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada, the Middle East, Africa and South America.
We congratulate Virgil Thornton II on the release of his published sci-fi/fantasy adventure novel Crescent of Darkness. We are so excited to have a signed copy available for checkout in the HHS library!
