German weekly newspaper DIE ZEIT and The International Museum of Children’s Art in Oslo, Norway organize International Online Art Contest for Children #kidspaintcorona.
How do children experience Covid-19-pandemic days? How have their daily routines changed? What are their hopes, their fears, their moments of joy? And what do they wish for in future times? Even the youngest ones can express themselves in pictures. We are sure, the results will be impressive for adults – now and in future times.
- The art campaign promotes artistic expression inviting kids world wide to present their emotions, feelings, ideas and on the covid-19
- The aim is also to raise awareness of children’s rights to self-expression and opinion, according to the UN Convention, Rights of the Child, Article no. 12-13.
What to Paint : It should be a picture, of course, but how big and colorful it is going to be is freely up to you. You are free to draw whatever you like. Maybe you wanna turn the virus into a comic. Maybe you are going to paint the view from your window. Or you try to express your feelings with colors. Paint, whatever makes you happy, whatever scares you or paint something you really miss. You could also travel through time in your head and paint a picture of what you wish for the future after corona.
