Canada International Children’s Art Festival

Canada International Children’s Art Festival



The Canada International Children’s Art Festival aims to bring together children from all backgrounds through creative expression. The Festival hopes to encourage children to develop an interest in the arts by providing a public outlet through which they can express themselves. Art is a global language, and it is through this language that children can better engage with the world around them.


The Children’s Art Festival was previously known as the Canada International Children’s Art Exhibition, founded in 2002. In the past sixteen years, the exhibition has featured over 10,000 young artists aged 17 and under from across the world. The 2010 Canada International Children’s Art Festival will be the first to be held outdoors at Nathan Phillips Square as well as incorporating the many different facets of artistic expression.

The festival is organized by the Canada International Children’s Art Foundation.

Let all the children in the world have a sense of concern for the environment, love life, and be the master of the future, and express the beautiful world of their hearts through art. The festival’s theme this year, Fair, hopes to emphasize to children the need for a greener lifestyle.
