Small Pieces of Art Created by 51 Children

“What do you see when you look around? The bulk of skyscrapers? A park where parents take their children to play? Maybe your “neighborhood” is composed of farms raising crops. The view from your front window could be of the ocean or a mountain. When children are asked to look at their world and render what they see in artwork, the results can be surprising, humouristic and even humble. In the hands of students, the vision of a neighborhood can become a portrait of the state bird, a still life of apples in autumn, or a starry night on a mystical sailboat. Art is a form of expression in which everyone can participate, a way to express the sense of self, and a sense of one’s place in the world. State of Art features the work of 51 children, one of each state and the District of Columbia, who answered a call to create from VSA and CVS Caremark All kids Can. The children were invited to think about what makes their community unique and depict their environments. The students used photography, finger paint, collage, ceramics, and computers to capture the diverse, creative lenses through which they view their world.” CVS Caremark All Kids Can™ The world can be beautiful and people can be creative even under not such favoring circumstances. The following showcase is about care, love and innocence. We want to enlarge the views of the world towards people with disabilities, and especially children. This is a tribute to their work and ambition.
