The 4th Paint Your Dream, an international group art exhibition organized by Focus Bangladesh, will begin today at the capital’s Bangladesh Club in Uttara. The two day long event will feature works by almost 400 children from six countries, including Bangladesh, India, Nepal, China, Thailand, and Srilanka.

The exhibition will have a day long workshop on painting on the first day. Almost 400 children who are to participate in the event will be divided into 3 age groups: Group A (4-7), Group B (8-11), and C (12-15).

The exhibition and prize giving ceremony for Groups A and B will be held on Friday morning with Additional Secretary Khan Mohammad Bilal as chief guest. 

The Group B exhibition and prize giving ceremony  will be on Friday evening with Md Atiqul Islam, mayor Dhaka North City Corporation, as chief guest. Ekushey Padak winning sculptor and artist Hamiduzzaman Khan is the special guest for the evening.

Md Atiqul Islam said in a recent press statement: "Art plays an important role in the socialization process of children. Through this children can express their feelings to one another or for each regardless of language, race, or religion. It indicates the mindset of a child. It may be his aim in life, his memories or his dream. Participating in these international events encourages children to learn about other cultures and improve their social viewpoint. ‘A child loves to paint or draw, so he must become an artist in the future’: this mindset is not always true. Rather, it expands their options and help them to select their future goal. Through this event, our rich culture gets more diversified, unique, and vice-versa."

"Children are the future of our country and I personally think that it is necessary for them to express themselves," added Atiqul.

The exhibition and competition organized by Focus Bangladesh and coordinated by Md Kauser Hossain, founder Focus Bangladesh and country leader of IWS Bangladesh. 

He said in a recent press statement: "Nowadays, art does not have that much importance in our society, whereas it is one of the fundamental aspects of mental development and the socialization process for children. They are the future and the representatives of our country. Focus Bangladesh is organizing these types of events to help our children get more socialized."
