Children Art Gallery
Armenia is famous for its artists, sculptors and stone-carvers. Moreover, Armenian children often experience early exposure to the fine arts. Perhaps this is why Yerevan has the world's first Children's Picture Gallery.
Throughout the years, the gallery has become a real center for developing an aesthetic sense in the younger generations. The spacious building consists of exhibition halls, workshops, a concert hall and a library.
Works by children from Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Britain, France, the USA, Canada, India and Japan have been exhibited at the gallery. Every year there are several one-man exhibitions of children's works aged from 3 to 16.
All displayed works remain on the gallery premises, which has now accumulated a collection of over 100,000 pictures. The modern artist David Siqueiros described the gallery as "a true festival for the children of the planet".
