kids art competition


















Art Alive: kids up to age 12 can participate at the Scientific Center in Kuwait with their production on a 30x40 - subject: "environment". Deadline: 9th of April 09. These kids have organized a workshop to play and produce art in its essence.
It is all about how art is encouraged at an early age.

As a historic background, a young artist in 1970 won an art competition, his photo and his work as he imagined Jerusalem was published in the newspaper "al Hayat" and his award was his weight in chocolate. Abdallah Kouatli still remembers that event and has been on a creative spur since then. It works...

I agree with Randa, I also think they should teach kids business in school as well although I would have probably flunked it. :)
