WATERTOWN, Mass. — OneWorld Classrooms, a nonprofit dedicated to building bridges between local and global classrooms through art and technology, will be presenting a free exhibit to showcase children’s art from Armenia and the rest of the world.

The exhibit will be on display at the Armenian Library and Museum of America (ALMA) at 65 Main St., from September 24 until December 31.

There will be an opening ceremony on September 24 from 2 to 5 p.m., which will include refreshments and a student art raffle/auction.

“The International Art Exchange is really a unique way to get students to interact and connect with other children from different cultures around the world, through art. When we saw the talent that some of these kids have and the uniqueness of the art work, we decided to display it for a larger audience to see it,” according to OneWorld Classrooms Board member and exhibit organizer Zela Astarjian.

OneWorld Classrooms is presenting this exhibit as part of its ongoing mission to give students in the US the ability to share, collaborate and explore with their global peers, as well as gain the skills, knowledge and cultural awareness they need to improve their academic achievements.
