Discovering New Artists invites budding children and young artists to participate from all across Pakistan in its exclusive National Art Challenge to cater to the current dilemma humans are facing. We are providing a chance for all the parents to spend some creative time with their children and assist them in making artwork on the given theme. Youth are also welcome to submit their artworks on the given theme. This challenge will not only provide help to the people affected by Coronavirus through the collected proceeds but also help our children and youth in their creative development.
All the students and individuals are encouraged to take motivation from their current surroundings, for example, you may draw/paint as simple as taking inspiration from family life, books, toys, technology, helping your parents and cooking to draw something about your new learning and how to spend quality time at home.
