International Children’s Exhibition of Fine Art Lidice
The International Children’s Exhibition of Fine Arts was established to commemorate the children victims from the Czech village Lidice who were murdered by Germans as well as all other children who have died during war conflicts.
The exhibition is being held in our country regularly already since the end of sixties and it is well known not only among children and teachers in our country but literally all over the world as every year thousands of children from all continents participate in it every year.
Until 1972 it had been a national competition then it changed its statute and became an international exhibition. It is pleasant that the exhibition is mentioned in renowned quarterly "Child Art" (The Magazine of the International Child Art Foundation), that is edited by ICAF (International Child Art Foundation) seated in Washington, as one of the most significant exhibitions together with those in Israel, France, Ireland, USA and others.
Those who visit this nowadays worldwide famous exhibition can every year admire a high quality works of children from all kinds of schools from more than 70 countries of the world, including those that are so exotic for us such as Bangladesh, Japan, Korea, Philippines, Kenya, Seychelles, Zimbabwe etc. Every year we receive more than 10 000 exhibits. Children can present their works in any art technique such as painting, drawing, graphics, ceramics, textile, wood sculpture, metal, plastic and paper objects, marionettes, toys and even photographs.
