Helping children experience the benefits of creating, exhibiting and celebrating visual art since 1994


Like magic, young minds blossom with imagination and creativity when children create art. Founded in Collingwood, Ontario, Magic of Children in the Arts has grown to an annual exhibition of more than 600 artworks created by children in our community. This is our 22nd year and we are still excited about helping young artists experience the benefits of making art.

Our mission is to inspire and encourage children to create, exhibit and celebrate art. Each piece of art submitted to the exhibition is reviewed by professional artists and EACH child receives a positive comment and a prize of art materials. The show culminates with an awards presentation.

With thanks to a strong partnership between our organization and the arts community, schools, the Town of Collingwood and Public Library, local businesses, community groups, parents and volunteers, Magic of Children in the Arts reaches more families every year. We hope you will join us this year.  Register
