Connecting the world one paintbrush at a time. Promoting peace and understanding through the universal language of art.


Paintbrush diplomacy encourages awareness of international issues and supports children’s causes through a variety of programs including educational exchanges, community exhibits, and special events.

For nearly three decades, Paintbrush Diplomacy has facilitated exchanges of art and personal stories between children across the globe. Children from Poland, Estonia, Russia, El Salvador, China, Saudi Arabia, Zimbabwe, Mexico, the United States and many other countries experience the diversity of cultures, seeing at the same time that we have more similarities than differences. 

We all seek peace, freedom, and light in the darkness. We hope to encourage friendliness and foster a sense of community among children of the world.
