CALL for CHILDREN’S ART
We are living in a critical time of the 21st century, and social distancing is keeping us apart. However, staying home also allows us to move inward to our inner space for thoughts, feelings, and imagination. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, artists worldwide are channeling their creativity and sharing their artwork online. Indeed, there are no boundaries in art nor the digital world. As the world joins hands to fight the epidemic, the World Chinese Arts Education Association (WCAEA) calls for "76 Pieces of Children's Artworks" from all kindergartens, primary and secondary schools, as well as other institutions and individuals. WCAEA will publicize juries selected child's artwork every day starting in June by publishing on WCAEA’s official websites (Chinese and English version) and other WCAEA online platforms.
76 Pieces of Children's Artworks is one of many events that are organized by the World Chinese Arts Education Association to echo United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organizations’ International Arts Education Week (May 25-May 31) to promote and advocate the importance of art education.
76 is the number of days that the City of Wuhan was closed down in fighting against COVID-19. We view 76 pieces of children’s art to provide hope, strength, and good wishes to the world, that we are in this together, that COVID-19 will not damper our creativity and humanity. We encourage children around the world to openly express and create uplifting artworks.
The World Chinese Arts Education Association (WCAEA) is a non-profit academic organization registered in Hong Kong. It is the only international arts education organization serving Chinese arts educators worldwide.
