Early in our history, CMA put out a worldwide call to ask children for artwork. As a result, CMA now holds one of the largest collections of children’s artwork in the world. See it here.
This year CMA celebrates 30 years of art making. Now embracing the digital age, CMA proposes a second call for children to make art worldwide with CIVICKIDS, and to begin a dialogue by sharing their art online. Each month, CMA will issue a digital challenge to create a project based on themes of civic engagement including leadership, sustainability, kindness, and freedom.
Join the movement! Here’s how to participate:
This month’s digital challenge is The Drawing Game. Created by Surrealist artists, The Drawing Game is an easy, social way to get creative with no drawing experience necessary. Try it out at home, at school, or anywhere else you find community!
Adults: This is a fun, low-risk icebreaker that can promote socialization. Encourage the child you’re working with to break down social barriers through art making! Together, reflect on what it was like making space for another person in their drawing.
Remember to share your projects and thoughts using #CMACIVICKIDS, and your project will be added to our online exhibition below!
