INTERNATIONAL STUDENT ART EXCHANGE BRIDGES THE WORLD CULTURAL IMMERSION DAYS SHOWCASE THE WORLD WORLD ARTISTS EXPERIENCES SALUTES VOLUNTEERS

In February, World Artists Experiences and the Embassy of the People's Republic of China's Cultural Office worked together to present their first joint student art exchange between American and Chinese elementary students.

The event was billed as a "visual dialogue" between Yijin Elementary School in the Zhejiang Province and Crofton Woods Elementary School in Crofton, Maryland.

The opening celebration, which included songs from both countries performed by students, was held on February 21 at Crofton Woods Elementary. Members from the Embassy of the People's Republic of China, and Maryland state and county government representatives attended the reception, as did local artists and members of the community. The final song was sung in darkness. As the song continued to describe the importance of children's lights in the world, the room was filled with candles that the children lit.

Some of the artwork was taken by Crofton Woods to be presented at the National Art Teachers' Association in New York City.
