Our art classes will be creating Pinwheels for Peace as their first art project this year. Pinwheels for Peace is an art installation project started in 2005 by Ann Ayers and Ellen McMillan, who were art teachers at Monarch High School in Coconut Creek, Florida, as a way for their students to express their feelings about what’s going on in the world and in their lives.
The first Pinwheels for Peace were installed on Sept. 21, 2005. Since then, they have grown from 500,000 pinwheels planted the first year, to four million pinwheels in 2015!
Here is a template link to print and create your own pinwheel.
