Arts and Crafts
Students engage in various forms of arts and crafts events throughout the year as a means of preserving and showcasing our culture and also encouraging personal artistic and creative growth. For the 2000 Millennium Quilt Project by artist Clara Wainwright, students crafted individual self-portraits with colorful and elaborate fabric. On Arts and Crafts Day in 2013, they painted a beautiful banner and made Tibetan masks to prepare for a local parade. They also have created murals and individual arts pieces for the Annual School Event’s art exhibit. In 2013, the students were invited to create and design Tibetan prayer flags for the Boston Marathon, created at the Isabella Gardner Museum and also displayed at the museum. As part of the school’s Speaker Series, we hope to invite traditional and contemporary Tibetan artists to talk with the students and their families.
