This on-line exhibition of children’s artwork sponsored by the United States Society for Education in the Arts (USSEA). This project is designed to celebrate diverse activities and ideas within art education and is open to all USSEA and INSEA members. We believe that art is an important aspect of the aesthetic, emotional, social, physical, and cognitive growth of children and young adults. Teachers can submit student work with to share with colleagues around the world in activities that promote peace, encourage tolerance and express their passion for art. We hope to begin a dialogue among members of USSEA, parents and teachers about the pedagogical and aesthetic impact of art in the lives of children and young adults.
