Children's imagination is the most precious resource in the universe, though unappreciated in our world.


Let's grow schoolchildren's imagination and empower them to democratize creativity and develop empathy universally for sustainable prosperity and lasting peace.


Since 1997, the ICAF has served American children—as their national arts organization—and their peers worldwide—as their international arts organization. The Arts Olympiad—the world's largest art program for schoolchildren—is organized under an exclusive license from the U.S. Olympic Committee. The Arts Olympiad winners from around the globe convene for three days on The National Mall at their World Children's Festival—the 'Olympics' of children's imagination which they stage and emcee.


Students can participate free-of-charge this year in the 6th Arts Olympiad. Families can come attend the 6th World Children’s Festival on The National Mall in June 2019. Teachers and parents can subscribe to ChildArt quarterly for children’s creative and empathetic development.


The ICAF is independently ranked among the 25 Top Children’s Charities in the United States. You can help build a brighter future with your donation today.
