Illinois State University Milner Library’s International Collection of Child Art celebrates the creativity and innovative work produced by children with a global perspective. Thought provoking representations of whimsical animals, fanciful portraits, musings on daily life, enchanting landscapes, and other imaginative themes provide a window for the viewer to share the often magical outlook of a child.

The work in this collection reflects the energy and inventiveness young artists bring to art-making and the profoundly imaginative vision they use to create images.  The collection holds over 8,600 original works of art made by children representing more than fifty countries and cultures.
