This year’s Celebrate Art from Around the World curriculum focused on food around the world and where food comes from.

Children explored student’s “food stories” artwork, made close observations of art, and engaged in open ended conversations.

Through these conversations children developed not only an appreciation of the arts but skills supporting critical thinking, visual literacy, communication, and collaboration.

Title: Preparing Food
Artist: Paul
Age: 13
Country: Uganda

This is a village scene. You can see women preparing food and some huts in the background.

My family consists of my mother and my three brothers, but I don’t have a father. He passed away, so I only have a family of four people. I like doing arts and crafts, and I like spending my time creating pictures which I later paint, thus improving my talent. I dislike playing in my free time and dislike underestimating people. I spend my leisure reading my books, making mobiles, and drawing cards. I want to be a pilot and an artist.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_separator height=”20″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”32752″ alignment=”center” img_link_target=”_blank” img_link_custom=”https://creativeconnections.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Sketchbook-1.pdf”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Create your own sketch inspired by this piece created by an ArtLink student artist!

Title: Giraffe Relaxing Under Tree
Artist: Vida
Age: 12
Country: Botswana

The giraffe is standing next to the tree. I chose this scene because the giraffe is one of my favorite animals.

My family are my mum, dad, and brother. I love horse-riding and acting. I hate reading. I spend my free time going riding, swimming, and bike-riding. I also do art and watch T.V. In my life, I hope to become someone who works with animals.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_separator height=”25″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”32924″ alignment=”center” img_link_target=”_blank” img_link_custom=”https://creativeconnections.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/sketchbook-page-2.pdf”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Create your own sketch inspired by this piece created by an ArtLink student artist!

Title: Cat and Dog Playing
Artist: Nastya
Age: 12
Country: Russia

On my picture I drew the scene where my cat and my dog are playing.

“I have a mother and father and also a grandmother and grandfather. I am interested in music, I play the piano, and I like to sing. I like English and art. I like playing a computer and traveling. I dislike football and going into the forest. I want to be a lawyer.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_separator height=”25″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”32970″ alignment=”center” img_link_target=”_blank” img_link_custom=”https://creativeconnections.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/sketchbook-page-3.pdf”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Create your own sketch inspired by this piece created by an ArtLink student artist!

Title: Bird Family Living On A Tree In My Garden
Artist: Kanishka
Age: 11
Country: Sri Lanka

One Saturday when I was reading a book under a big tree in my garden I heard some birds singing. When I saw them I thought it was a very nice scene and have drawn it. I chose this scene since I sympathize with all beings, birds and animals.

I have one little sister and a pet dog named Peggi. I like to be kind towards animals and poor children who are employed. I hate to see poor animals and children being tortured. I spend my free time by reading books about astronomy, playing chess, and football. I hope to become a space engineer. I am a member of the Sir Arthur C. Cleark’s Institute in Sri Lanka.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_separator el_class=”solid”][vc_column_text]

“Our Traditions” is a showcase of family traditions from across the world.

These videos were created as a result of a call to our ArtLink community.
We asked students and their families to share a family tradition that was important to them.

Below you’ll find “Our Traditions” (a 3-min video) featuring highlights from the video submissions.



Also enjoy 6 full length videos from families that were selected because of their vision and creativity!

We wish to thank all of the families who participated in making this project a success.
