Children from all countries and faiths are invited to be part of BPF initiatives, which include 3 annual global galleries, community leadership projects, and collaborative special events.  Big Picture Foundation accepts submissions from individual children and from group leaders.  Kids may share any example of their art, as long as the work is considerate of global cultures.  If submissions are based on BPF “Shared Themes,” the art is included in both the “Global Gallery” and in one of our “Shared Themes” galleries.  Finally, we love publishing stories about how kids use the arts to strengthen their local, national, or global communities.

Library Green ReDesign at New Rochelle Public Library

“In this week long program, ArchForKids challenged children to redo the library green at the main entrance. Kids worked in teams to brainstorm and make models of the park.

Big Picture Foundation Home Base Group, Rye, NY

Home base kids help with the administration of the program. The kids come together for organizational meetings and make art to contribute to each global gallery.  We do not specifically run a home base art class.  Home base kids typically make their art on their own or at BPF community events that they help organize.

Event: Home Base Group Participates in the RyeACT Speak Out

Rye Arts Center, May 8th 2018

RyeACT focuses on making exciting opportunities available to kids.  By encouraging leadership and learning, RyeACT veers teens away from substance abuse and toward community engagement.  Big Picture Foundation was so honored to be included in the their May 8th Speak Out.  While it happened months ago, it was 8 days after our submission deadline, so the event wasn’t covered in our Spring Global Gallery.  The Speak out gave kids the opportunity to talk about their passions, concerns, struggles, and goals.  Local organizations created displays, outlining a range of opportunities for kids.

Event: BPF summer trip to see Yayoi Kusama in the Rockaways

Over the summer, BPF high school kids voluntarily attended grant writing sessions at Greenwich Library.  They ended with a celebratory art trip to Fort Tilden Park in the Rockaways, where they visited “Rockaway! 2018: Narcissus Garden by Yayoi Kusama.”
