Nonviolenceworks Inc. has been the engine behind this project that encourages young artists to involve their families and the community in recognizing their work.
This show is comprised of the best works of the children of Taos grades 6 through 12. All of the work is based on the theme of nonviolence. The mission is to explore the potential of art to express and process difficult personal and social issues in positive and nonviolent ways.
The Taos Center for the Arts is proud to be presenting these courageous images at the Encore Gallery. The artwork is not for sale and the artists agreed that the work may be photographed for use by Nonviolenceworks, Inc.
The overall mission of Nonviolenceworks Inc. is to inspire, train and empower all people to lead lives of nonviolence.
