The Show Us Your Art Show is a unique children’s art show and auction, involving more than 50 pieces of art created by children in and around the Vancouver area. Partial proceeds go to support the Children's Heart Network.
I live in Whistler, BC. I am part of the Children's Heart Network because I have a congenital heart defect. My art is called "Dotty Hearts". The hearts represent people with congenital heart conditions and the dots represent everyone else. The price of "Dotty Heats" will start at $25, but my parents say they will have the first bid at $100. lf you like this artwork, be prepared for a bidding war!
Show Us Your Art is not just a unique opportunity for young children to submit artwork and have it on public display at The Kids Market and online. It is also an educational opportunity, which makes the partnership between The Kids Market and The Children’s Heart Network even more special.
Each child who submitted artwork has learned that, even though they are young, by helping educate about and fundraise for sick children, they are helping build healthier communities and letting sick kids know they care.
In addition to holding the art auction during Congenital Heart Disease Awareness Week, organizers planned their event to coincide with and support other local events in the area, including:
The concept of Show Us Your Art, comes from wanting to teach kids about both philanthropy & entrepreneurship while encouraging and nurturing culture for future generations.
All the artists participating in the inaugural 'Show Us Your Art Show' were given full creative license to express themselves however they wanted, even in the case of group projects with clear goals.
