How to Participate


This is not a competition but rather a collaborative art project uniting kids throughout the world.  ALL OF THE ARTWORK WE RECEIVE WILL BE FEATURED in the Special Edition Young Artists Book published each year and distributed to our large network of friends and supporters  via our on-line gallery.

  1. SIGN UP on this site. It’s FREE!!
  2. CREATE! Get out your crayons, paints and collage materials and tell the world what is on your mind! You can make it square. You can make it round or simply no shape at all. It can be landscape. It can be portrait. True art comes in many forms.  Express yourself.  (Minimum dimensions of original artwork: 8.5 x 11) Please, try to use the theme: Create, Give, Share
  3. SUBMIT your artwork. Ask your parents to scan or photograph your artwork. We recommend scanning. It’s the easiest and gives the best results. Then, simply send us the file!  Do NOT send us your original artwork. We just need a digital copy.  SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS OCTOBER 1ST each year  (Please see official rules for more details.  Unfortunately, we will have to refuse files that do not meet these requirements.)


We will slowly release all of the submissions in random order. Once released, we encourage you to share this event with your friends, family, classmates, playmates, etc.  We think you should let everyone know what a great artist you are and how you are making a difference in the world for your and future generations!

You should be very proud of your contribution!! We are.
