Art Pals International enables children from different nations, of different languages and backgrounds, to engage in a cross-cultural dialogue through the medium of art. To this end, we also promote the interchange of teachers and teaching artists from various countries to share with communities where exchanges have already been established. Lastly, we seek to raise funds for small-scale community development projects in the communities with whom we exchange.
Children have a universal and at the same time personal way of expression, that is culturally influenced.
We hope the children will learn about other cultures, develop understanding and empathy while discovering different styles of expression, and developing a satisfying way of expressing themselves.
