The World Art Championship Global Open Art (“GOA”) 2018 Championship is organized by the New Liberal Arts Foundation (“NLA”), the charitable 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports and operates GLOARTY and the other free art and education projects worldwide.


The great artist Pablo Picasso once said that “the purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.” GOA seeks to highlight the beauty and creativity of children all over the world, regardless of their surroundings and whether that child may or may not be poor, a refugee or even an orphan. GOA highlights the potential of all and each of these children.
