“Since 2010, Peekok YouthARTS Initiatives has partnered with Creative Connections USA to facilitate the ArtLink exchanges among students in Nigeria and in the United States.

The 2015 ArtLink Theme is Picture the Moment, when the students were challenged to leave the technology behind and take out some brushes, markers, pencils, pastels, etc.  Using the medium of arts, to take time to thoughtfully capture a specific moment to share with their partners.
The moments they chose from include them with and the family members, classmates, friends, and community members taking part in an activity that reveals a cultural value that is particularly meaningful to them.

All artists have been invited to the 2015 International Children’s Art Exhibit and opening reception Maritime Aquarium’s IMAX Lobby, 10 North Water Street, Norwalk, CT USA on May 14 – Labor Day, 2015.

Selected pieces may also be taken to area classrooms, libraries, museums, etc. for exhibits and art workshops.”
