These artists from Woodlawn E.S., Alexandria, VA were lucky enough to work with Marielle Mariano, Arts Specialist from Arlington, VA who now coordinates the East Coast CHALK4PEACE Project and who has organized and attended more than 60 C4P events in the past 10 years! A veritable Force of Nature, Marielle has developed a comprehensive TEACH PEACE lesson plan that combines disciplines, courses and media to help her students be highly informed when it comes to the concepts and history of Peace and Peacebuilding.
