International Child Art Foundation

Fostering children's creativity and empathy through the arts for a brighter future for all.

Our Story


Founded in 1997 as the national arts organization for American children and the international arts organization for the world’s children, the ICAF ranks today among the 25 Top Children’s Charities in the United States.

Come celebrate the ICAF’s 20th anniversary by spreading the 6th Arts Olympiad to area schools, introducing ChildArt Magazine to creative kids, and supporting the children so they could bring the human race together at their 6th World Children’s Festival on The National Mall in June 2019.

Children are creators, not merely pupils, and we believe they should be schooled and raised as such. Our arts-based interventions motivate students from the inside, fostering their creativity and developing empathy to improve academic performance, encourage ingenuity, promote healthy lifestyles, and celebrate teamwork and diversity.
