Cairo Amman Bank children’s paintings competition The Eighth Session

Sun, 2016-12-18


Since the year 2009 and when Cairo Amman Bank decided to hold Children Paintings Competition in its First Session, our main goal was to encourage the children of Jordan to experience the spirit of art competition, and to grant them the opportunity for an opened organized art work that does not impose conditions as to subject or material. And we believed that this competition will have its fundamental impacts on the child’s heart and memory and will open to him a new door to experience a taste of art and early involvement in creativity, receiving responses and enhancing incentives.

It is our pleasure at Cairo Amman Bank Gallery, as we begin preparations for the Eighth Session of this competition, for which “Special” attendance has been ascertained in our educational and formative arena, achieved high goals and has become the most important event awaited by Jordan children annually so as to participate and have their art work displayed.

In our name and on behalf of our partner in the competition Fabriano the international, the leading company specialized in the industry of painting art paper, we welcome our students sons/daughters for a broad participation, and we will keep our promise to provide all that is useful to support our children, “Future Gem” so that this competition remains as the Bank’s gift for children holding high educational values and having future artists feel the enjoyment of unlimited encouragement.

Contribution of Ministry of Education and the educational program at The United Nations Relief and Works for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA) has an active and important role in the success and expansion of the circle of participation in the competition to achieve noble goals in creating art-loving generation through which we look ahead.

As long as arts through history were the carrier of the spirit of nations and the level of their progress and civilization, and since the old human who expressed what is hidden in his soul and fear of the affliction of nature by painting on the walls of the caves, and with a link to magic power, in which our fore grandfathers found it as the only way to explain the natural phenomena and to solve their puzzles and so far, after the transformation of art as means to understand the nature to a purely aesthetic value, was of a high position in the interest of the peoples, and it was dominant in the minds and hearts of the successive generations, and as art had this important position, special academies and colleges were established in the world to have it taught, so that it is now a multi-trends specialization and did not stop at the borders of visual arts, led by painting, but exceeded to decor, fashion design, designing and performing arts of dance, theatre and techniques associated with these specializations and attention had to be focused on the school curriculums, and preparing the new generations since the kindergarten and primary stages and implantation of concept of beauty and its enjoyment. So art purifies the soul and brings it up and contributes in addition to other sciences to building new human whom we aspire to be. Our Arab Nation with its current circumstances is in dire need of pushing the youths’ potentials and building a childhood away from the negative influences which our Arab human had suffered as a result of scourges, wars and setbacks.
