Guest Post: Tracy Newton of Koinonia Farm

Since our campers have been working on mural-style art projects, we’ve been thinking a lot about art and it’s role in peacemaking. Tracy Newton, an intern at Koinonia, has brought her artistic skills to Koinonia. She created a tree mural on the ceiling of the Koinonia coffee house and has been doing (and selling it – with some proceeds going to Koinonia)¬†art based on things she sees at Koinonia. Tracy has been a big supporter of Peacebuilders Camp and even donated a painting to our silent auction.

Here is a blog post she wrote about the process of creating her beautiful tree mural:

Dreaming of a New World: Behold a Tree

And here are photos of Tracy’s art and ours…
