by kids concerned about
Murals are painted by others, including refugees who set aside their own
pain and feel the pain of others in faraway places like Beslan…
sending their compassion about youth violence and horror
about child soldiers, street gangs, victims of VIOLENCE!

Message to Beslan
Celebrities fight for causes too!
While Painting Murals, we also recently started painting shoes for the “Invisible Children” in Uganda
to help us identify young people for our Peace Paint Ambassador Program: youth volunteers willing to be spokespersons and representatives of Art Miles!
