Kids' Guernica at Toyono Nursery School in Japan

March, 2012

All the children of Toyono Nursery School in Neyagawa City, Japan created a Kids’ Guernica peace painting on the theme of “Peace and Ties". 74 nursery kids participated in this project and mainly six–year-old kids painted it. It took ten months to complete it from June to March.
“It was a fan to paint with my friends and seeing how the painting was changing. I enjoyed finishing a huge painting by hands.” Six-year-old boy
“I enjoyed painting a sun on a big canvas with my friends, painting my foot and making the print for the pretty shape.” Three-year-old girl
“It was really fun to make footprints! (for the shape of the sun)” Three-year-old boy.
