    The Naregatsi Art Institute (NAI) is proud to announce it has become
    the Armenian national partner for the International Child Art
    Foundation?s (ICAF) Third Arts Olympiad in Washington, D.C., the
    world?s largest and most prestigious art competition for children aged
    eight to twelve. The International Arts Olympiad involves three
    million children in over 100 countries. Each national partner holds a
    National Arts Olympiad, where the winning young artists represent
    their countries during the week long festival and exhibition in
    Washington, D.C. in June of 2007.

    NAI has been chosen to be the national partner due to its dynamic and
    growing presence in the art world of Armenia. NAI is dedicated to
    serving Armenia?s existing cultural heritage through supporting
    Armenian contemporary artists and creating a forum in which the spirit
    of art and the common voice can resonate freely. Through its various
    projects for children, NAI sees the artistic development of the
    children of Armenia as an investment in the artists of tomorrow.

    NAI invites all schools, art programs, orphanages, NGOs for children,
    and community organizations throughout Armenia to participate in the
    Armenian Children?s Arts Olympiad 2006. This free program for children
    aged eight to twelve begins with a suggested lesson plan for teachers
    in order to help students create paintings and drawings on the theme

    ?My Favorite Sport?.

    Each school or organization may submit up to three artworks created by
    their students by the deadline of October 5th, 2006. The Naregatsi
    Art Institute?s independent and distinguished panel of judges will
    choose the 50 best entries for an art exhibition in October, 2006,
    when the 1st place winner will be announced.
