A penpal artshare program between our kids in Los Angeles and the children of Uganda, India and Lebanon.
The children share postcards with their penpals each month. We select a theme and the children create their own art piece on the postcard to send to their buddy. With each postcard they ask more questions about each other and are learning to appreciate the differences and the similarities in their two worlds.
This program expands children’s world view, their understanding of geography and other countries and cultures. It also encourages gratitude, tolerance and empathy.
