The Children’s Painting Exhibition is a nationwide open exhibition which is held in the hope that children who will lead the next generation will exchange with people of all ages through paintings and cultivate a deep sensitivity by enjoying art. The number of entries has exceeded 1200 each time. The exhibition values the personality and diversity of individual children who choose themes freely, seeks to convey the joy of painting, and offers opportunities to discover imaginative ideas and the potential of children.
