“My Future My Will”: International Children’s Paintings Exhibition

After birth, children begin to explore and try to understand the world by placing the “self” at the foundation of perception. At first, they cannot draw the boundary between themselves and the world. Then gradually, they learn to observe and describe the world from the perspective of “me”. Even if they can’t express themselves in words clearly, they will draw things whenever they pick up pens. During their growth, they learn to draw objects by using signs and express their feelings with brushes. They represent the real “self” by painting in their own way as kids.
