Students at the Academy of the Americas have been greeted with artwork from around the world thanks to a traveling art exhibition that made a stop at the school.
Masterpieces by young artists from around the world travel the country annually as part of Pentel’s International Children’s Art Exhibition. Students all over the world compete by entering their paintings, drawings, and collages through an art instructor or educator.
The ICAE was founded in 1970 in Osaka, Japan, and entries have more than tripled since then, according to the organization. Over 200 countries have entered more than three million pieces of artwork. Each year, several exhibitions consisting of thousands of multi-national, award-winning pieces are assembled to tour in Japan, Ireland, the United Kingdom, the Russian Federation, the United States, Mexico, Costa Rica, Venezuela, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore.
The original artwork is on display at the Academy of the Americas, 5680 Konkel Street, through Friday, Oct. 23.
