We serve American children as their national arts organization to foster their creativity and develop empathy among them and with their peers worldwide through the universal language of art.


Children’s creative and empathic development can create hope for all, because creativity and empathy are preconditions for sustainable prosperity and peace, and key attributes of successful learners and leaders.


This year across America and in nearly one hundred countries, the 6th Arts Olympiad will foster schoolchildren’s creativity and imbue it with empathy. Next year, communities dotting the globe will celebrate their children’s talents and select the Arts Olympiad winners as official delegates to the 6th World Children’s Festival in June 2019 in Washington, D.C. At their world festival the children will bring the human race together to celebrate Creativity, Diversity, and Unity on The National Mall.


Join the children’s revolution by supporting the ICAF, which is ranked among the 25 Top Children’s Charities in the United States.
