Top 100 #Kidspaintcorona art campaign 2020
Dear young artists around the world, followers, partners and friends!
We are happy to announce and show the world how children all over the planet experienced the Corona-time. SEE GALLERY BELOW OF THE TOP-100.
Together we collected more than 5500 pieces of art: Kids from 64 countries submitted their pictures, the youngest one was not even 2 years old. We are overwhelmed by this response and by the high quality of the entries! We’ve spent quite some time to view all the entries and had a hard time to put together a selection of 100 pictures that we hereby share with you – and the world. Please note! We are not presenting the BEST pieces of art – every picture is unique and should be shown to the world. We tried to create a wide selection that represents the variety of themes, of the different countries and ages of the children. SCROLL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM FOR FACTSHEET AND MORE INFO:
