Canada International Children's Art Festival

The 10th annual Art Festival for children from all backgrounds takes place from July 21 to August 3, 2012 in #Toronto. "The Festival hopes to encourage children to develop an interest in the arts by providing a public outlet through which they can express themselves. Art is a global language, and it is through this language that children can better engage with the world around them."
In Nathan Phillips Square on Saturday July 28 there was live painting and an awards ceremony for children as excited parents gathered around the elevated stage. The event was promotion of their green living ideals to the children. "This year’s festival theme is “Green Life, We create together”. The goal of the live painting event is to educate kids and their families on environmental issues, make them aware of available resources and opportunities, and also to promote, encourage, and reward new innovative ideas."
Teachers win some awards as well

The CICAF has been organized by the Canada-China Council since 2007 and children from ages 3 to 17 years old are the key to this Festival. See more photos after the jump.
