Arts Without Borders

Peace offers a fine arts enrichment program called “Arts Without Borders” in which students participate in a variety of cultural and fine arts experiences offered throughout the greater Chicagoland area. Over 4 years, each student will engage in 4 trips/experiences, 1 each year, which include plays, symphonies, operas, music and dance performances, museums, special exhibits and cultural programs. These experiences in total are designed to engage students in diverse settings, widen their exposure to all forms of artistic and cultural expression, deepen their awareness of the wealth of arts resources available and promote creativity and diversity in its many and beautiful forms. Each experience involves preparation and integrative assignments as well as a personal reflection.
