On April 18, the children converged again for the fourth edition of the CHILDREN ART CLUB at the Cultural and Musical Heritage Centre, OLUMO ROCK, Ikija, Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria. At the April edition of the CHILDREN ART CLUB, the children were made to create art using diverse colour media on the theme “HAPINESS”. Art works that capture people’s laughter and smile in such a way that is capable of lightening and brightening viewers’ mood and inspire happiness. This is to present the children art as a catalyst for social change.

Children are naturally born curious, imaginative and creative, but these qualities cannot grow unless they are nurtured. TEACHING VISUAL ART will like to collaborate and partner with other organization to create a creative platform and engagement for African children. If you'd like to help a child realizes his/her creative side, then the CHILDREN ART CLUB is the project for you.

We appreciate the president of Olumo Art Movement, Mr. Kola Anidugbe for providing the space for the artistic engagement; thanks to the volunteers and facilitators, Mr. Yinka Olagoke, Miss Momodu Rosemary, Mr. Hunjenukon Kehinde and Prince Olusegun Adeniyi. Many thanks to our friends in the media for their support, together we are pushing the frontline of Art education in Nigeria while building future generation of creative and innovative leaders.

CHILDREN ART CLUB is powered by TEACHING VISUAL ART and it is endorsed by InSEA. The next edition of the CHILDREN ART CLUB comes up on May 16, 2015.
