"Very enjoyable. So precious!
It’s like a Christian Kids Candid Camera! Great job!"
Teacher at Evangelical Christian School who attended a KTAG Arts Festival
Kids Talk About God Arts Festivals feature your children’s writing and art in a PowerPoint presentation by Carey Kinsolving. Arts Festivals attract larger audiences of relatives and friends because their children’s faith expressions are featured in the program.
Arts Festivals are thematic. Anticipation builds as children answer festival questions and draw art to illustrate their answers. Carey selects the best answers and art for scanning into a PowerPoint Presentation. Until the evening of the presentation, no one knows which children’s writing and art Carey will select to feature in his presentation. Also, be ready for interesting answers when kids are asked about their art and writing before a live audience.
Children receive encouragement and affirmation when they see that their faith expressions are being taken seriously. Most churches and schools like to display festival art from all children who participated in the festival.

Micah Bender. Her drawing on the birth of Jacob
& Esau is now featured in the Kids Color Me Bible.
RIGHT: Megan Miles, 8, with classmates, shows her winning artwork, which was selected for the cover of the “Kids Talk About God” gift book. This book was published by J. Countryman and distributed in Gold Crown Hallmark Stores.
All children's drawings gathered in Arts Festivals will be considered for publication in the Kids Talk About Online Art Gallery.
Examples of questions successfully used in festivals on the topic of heaven include: 1) What does heaven look like? 2) What will you do your first day in heaven? 3) How do you get to heaven? In describing heaven’s appearance, one boy wrote, "I think I would have my own room and not with my brother.”
Other popular festival themes include Kids Talk About Mom (Great for Mother’s Day), Kids Talk About Christmas and Kids Talk About Love & Marriage (Valentine’s Day). Carey will consider all festival writing, art and speaking for publication in his syndicated newspaper column, books, videos and website. Carey will work with you and your staff to design a custom presentation within the limits of your time, production capabilities, outreach goals and budget.
