The Color of Kids: Junior artists chalk up Children's Day


Last Sunday, the Institute of Manuscripts made ready for the chalk painting competition for Children's Day in Matenadaran small square.
"I can't wait fot the start of the compeition. . . Let's start already!"
Readying for the start, chalk boxes poised for use . . .
And with a loud speaker announcing "Let's start our competition" . . .
. . . but wait. Isn't it just for children? Okay, for mothers, too . . .
This is my mother.
This is my mother land.
This is our peaceful soul.
Imagination can cross lines, but the chalk must stay inside.
Anxious young painters await a winner.
And the winning entry is of a peaceful world, taken from the mind of a child.
And at the end of the day, there's no more room for color. Until next year.
