Bringing Art To Schools
Education is more than just reading, writing, and arithmetic. While not always comfortable, our world is increasingly global and diverse. We always have a choice: to stand upon our similarities that bring us closer to each other, or emphasize superficial differences that can drive us apart. A more harmonious, balanced, and prosperous society builds on similarities, rather than differences.
At Besharat Foundation, our goal is to nurture sympathy and empathy among children of all ages. The ability to understand the feelings of others is crucial for the future custodians of our planet and all life on it.
Our method is simple. We bring art to schools in the hope that daily contact with thought-provoking art will help children acquire a deeper level of understanding and empathy for our planet and its people. There’s no preaching or lecturing required – art works exhibited in a professionally curated show on the school walls will provide all the answers and hopefully inspire students.
