The first edition of the exhibition was organised in 2018 with an aim of promoting desire and love of arts among children, she said.

Most of paintings, which were created from wax, colour wax and water colour on papers, expressed dreams and hopes of the underprivileged children group in future life.

Trinh added that the museum plans to offer an artwork camp where children and the children with disabilities could create themselves paintings on the knowledge and skills learned from different centres.
