Art Gallery

Hanging upon refrigerator doors everywhere, along with party invitations and family snapshots, is the best of our children’s artwork. As the Web has become a global exhibition space for kids’ art, the refrigerator door metaphor has become common. If you would like to see your child’s art “hanging” on the Web, here are some sites that accept submissions. [Editor’s Note: An updated version of this topic can be found here: Art Gallery]

Kids' Space5 stars

"Kids' Space" must be everybody's favorite site, judging by the string of Web awards displayed on their home page. It is also one of my mine. Artwork is organized in exhibit halls dedicated to Science, Transportation, Scenery, Animals, People, Fantasy, and Abstracts. Pictures are displayed thumbnail-size along with a quote from the artist, providing a delightful insight into each child. Click on any picture to view it full size. Submissions from artists up to 16 years old are accepted via e-mail.

Zeen Art Gallery4 stars

"Zeen" is an electronic magazine (ezine) just for teens. It includes not only art, but also articles and stories penned by teens and submitted by e-mail. Younger siblings can visit the "Zeen's" sister site, CyberKids Art Gallery.

Honorable Mentions
