Children’s Art around the World

Print Share

    Through paintings, drawings, and collages, more than 2,600 young Latter-day Saint artists from around the world shared their thoughts on family for the first international children’s art exhibit sponsored earlier this year by the Museum of Church History and Art, Salt Lake City.

    “The pictures, created by children ages five through eleven, celebrate the importance of families,” said museum educator Jenny Lund, who helped organize the exhibit. “Through their art, they express their faith in God, their love for their families, their insight, and their creativity.”

    Of the 2,600 pieces submitted, three hundred were selected for the four-month-long exhibit. A sampling of these works appears on these pages and on the inside back cover.
