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 Postcard Party. Sending a letter to an elected official is a surefire way to make your voice heard! Artists have an advantage—they know how to make their letters and postcards the most eye-catching! How will you get your elected official’s attention, and what will you say?
Adults: This project is a good opportunity to do some research with your child identifying civic and cultural leaders in your community. Will you thank them for their service? Encourage them to support the arts?
Remember to share your projects and thoughts using #CMACIVICKIDS, and your project will be added to our online exhibition below!
