Painting exhibition features children’s insight

The ‘2nd Flower and Sun’ painting exhibition, which opened on June 1 in Hanoi, offers a chance to contemplate works by child painters and helps adults relive their childhood.

Nearly 100 paintings by 26 children and one teacher from the Flower and Sun Club on display at the Vietnam Fine Arts Museum, 66 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street feature their insights into nature, landscapes, dreams and daily life.

Nguyen Nhu Quynh, who is a teacher and the chairperson of the Flower and Sun Club, shared that the club was established in April 2012 in the hope of creating an environment to develop children’s artistic ability and creating a wholesome activity for children.

The exhibition, which forms part of activities to celebrate International Children’s Day, is intended to present the works of these little painters while encouraging and honouring their artistic creations, according to Quynh.

“Joining the club, I can satisfy my passion for drawing and also have chances to participate in some charitable activities which help me understand more about the difficult life of friends who still suffer from poverty. I want to express sympathy with those people through my paintings ”, said Ngo Minh Kien, a 10 year old painter of the Flower and Sun Club.

Part of the revenue earned from the exhibition will be given to ‘Only Rice Is Not Enough’, a charity programme that raises funds to provide food and cooking services in elementary schools in poor mountainous regions. The children in these areas have only plain rice and salt everyday without any other source of nutrition. In addition to supplying food, the programme also aims to expand its activities by aiding more basic needs, such as clean water, hygiene, books and learning tools.

The Flower and Sun club, managed by teacher Nguyen Nhu Quynh, was established in April 2012 in the hope of creating an environment to develop children’s artistic ability and creating a wholesome activity for children.

The exhibition runs until June 5.
