New York
Children's Museum of the Arts

The mission of the Children’s Museum of the Arts is to extend the benefits of the arts to all children and their communities and to secure the future of the arts by inspiring and championing the next generation of artists and art lovers.

We work to fulfill our mission by providing authentic hands-on art experiences for children with artists, both in our art-filled interactive museum, in the community, and by collecting and exhibiting children’s art.

We are committed to celebrating the artist in every child and promoting access to the arts for all children regardless of ability or socioeconomic status because we believe the arts are critical to child and youth development and to strong and vibrant communities.

Art Child

ART CHILD is an active partner of the program "2001-2010 international decade for a culture of peace and non violence for the children of the world" proclaimed by the United Nations and coordinated by UNESCO. Our goal is to help diffuse the messages of peace and harmony expressed by the children of the world through their Artwork.

The exhibits are renewed each year, and many of them are shown in international shows of children’s art abroad.The museum’s aim is not only to promote and study the creative work of children, but also to create a site where communication can take place, knowledge can be gained and awareness can be raised on artistic issues.

International School Manila

Welcome to Miss Helen’s Art Blog! My full name is Helen Arnold. I am thrilled to be appointed as Program Leader for Elementary Art at ISM. The Elementary Art Department is a team of four – Miss Jones, who teaches Pre-School to Grade 1, Mrs Domingo, who teaches Grades 1 to 3. Myself, with Grades 2 to 4, and our magnificent, incredibly artistic Teaching Assistant, Mr Gari Carreon. Together, we view our role as providing a strong foundation in art which will effectively guide our students on their journey into Middle and High School. We are continuously developing and improving our program to ensure students experience a wide range of art skills and techniques using a variety of media. It is our mission to help students understand that Art is not only about drawing, as many think it is! Art is constructing, forming, printing, painting, sewing, dying, weaving, collaging, sculpting, drawing and so much more. We help students to identify their particular strengths and weaknesses in art and show them the many opportunities available to them. We show them where art is useful in every day life and open their eyes to particular career opportunities
