<< Subject: Invitation for Children from Greece
From: Iwo Gajda <iwog>

"The Children's Art Gallery" project at:
offers free exhibition space to children who
wish to present their drawings.

Children from all over the world may present their drawings
to each other ... and all of us on the internet. Drawings
can be presented directly from a web-browser (no mail
or e-mail involved).

We invite you to visit the gallery or one of the "dedicated

The Gallery - as it is now

The gallery presents works of art by children from various
cultures and age groups. Works presented in the gallery come
from such countries/cultures as: China, Croatia, Czech Republic,
Egypt, Hong Kong, Lebanon, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, Russia,
Scotland, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, USA, Western Sahara and
... and are created by children from 3 to 17 years old.

The gallery is designed to facilitate sharing of drawings made
by children among all of us on the internet.

Visitors can not only view the drawings that are already
presented in the gallery but also present their own drawings.

The collection can be viewed in selectable exhibitions
(by child's name, age, country, year, teacher, school, project)
or within preselected exhibitions dedicated to a child, school,
pupils of a teacher ...

Drawings in "gif" or "jpeg" format can be presented in the gallery
DIRECTLY FROM A WEB-BROWSER within not more than 2-3 minutes
... and transfered drawings are visible immediately to all the visitors.
When presenting a drawing, you transfer two images of your
drawing and create a description for the drawing. The description
may include links to your site and - as a rule - contains
your e-mail address ... so that all those who would like to
contact you may do so.
Children, teachers ... who present more then 5-10
drawings are invited to present themselves within their own
dedicated exhibitions.

Detailed information on how to present drawings in the gallery
and where to get help when your drawings require scanning
is available on the site.

The Gallery - Purpose

The gallery is a sharing facility open to any "citizen of the internet".
It's intended purpose is to:
- offer exhibition space to children wishing to present their
- create a platform where children, parents and teachers from
cultures and countries could meet each other.
- create a platform where different children's art related projects
and activities could meet, compare their work and eventually
initiate cooperation.
- create a resource that would give all of us the chance to percept
reality through the eyes of children.
