Young People's Art Exchange Project

In August, the 60-piece American exhibit, accompanied by 10 young artists and several teachers, will tour Beijing, Shanghai and Hohehot, Inner Mongolia. When the members of the group return, they will bring with them a similar exhibition prepared by Chinese students at the children's palaces they have visited. During their visit to China, members of the American tour group will participate in a seminar on art education and take field trips with their Chinese hosts to cultural and historical sites.
Each side will learn about each's philosophy, practice, and programs through children's art.
