Abstract

The research question addressed is: how does an international art exchange affect the perspectives and understandings of the participants? The motivating factor for this capstone is that teachers are preparing students to be future leaders and socially conscious citizens in an increasingly global world. Experiences that promote global awareness and cross cultural knowledge should be part of the education process. This paper examines the effects of Flying Art, an international art exchange program, on global perspectives and understanding of the participants involved. The results of the study rely on data collected from a semi-structured interview process. Furthermore, this capstone explains general qualities of meaningful global lessons for teachers and students.
