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, and kindness.
Join the movement! Here’s how to participate:
This month’s digital challenge is Collage Who We Are. Who are we but what we like? Our identities can be influenced by always having an open mind and being receptive to the beauty around us. Small glimpses of color can calm us. Gazing at an elegant line can inspire us.
Adults: This activity can be used to discuss what makes us unique — from our likes and dislikes, to our hair, to our hobbies, and skills. Encourage visual literacy by asking young artists about the choices they make!
Remember to share your projects and thoughts using #CMACIVICKIDS, and your project will be added to our online exhibition below!
