The artists split up into two groups. The first went to the Art On the Fence Festival where they painted an old Ammunitions Bunker. The second group went to a school for Arab Israeli Kids. They got to play soccer and have fun with the kids despite the language barrier.

Dolev is a residential rehabilitation school in the community of Dolev near Modiin for 107 high-risk girls (ages 10-19) from all over Israel. We were invited there to paint the school and add color like we have become famous for. The girls really appreciated the difference we made to the campus. That evening we had an amazing dinner with the Deputy Director General Ministry of Public Diplomacy in Jerusalem.
