Children's Tet paintings celebrate New Year

A selection of 57 paintings by children are on display at the New Spring – New Artworks exhibition in celebration of the coming Tet (Lunar New Year) holidays in the central city of Da Nang.

The exhibition collected 1,380 paintings of children in age groups from six to 15 years-old in the city, and the best ones were assigned for public display through the Tet holidays.

Most of the paintings focus on Tet festival – the country's biggest traditional holiday – and the emotions of children seeing in the new year.

Children in the city had made their endeavour in a challenging year, with many creating artworks when they were homeschooling due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The exhibition opens from December 25 to February 20 at the city’s Fine Arts Museum, 78 Le Duan Street, a favourite visited site for locals and tourists during Tet holiday, after most art exhibitions and performances were cancelled due to COVID-19 through 2020-21.

In August, 25 paintings by 16 children on the COVID-19 fight went on display at the museum.
