Whether it’s the second International Village of Games and Art, the first Story Telling Festival, or an art exhibition, the IFPPP painting are always somewhere around the corner, embellishing the walls or stands, or dazzling in between cubes on taxidermized animals.
This year’s celebration began with the week-long 2nd International Village of Games and Art that was main-sponsored by the Primo/ Morocolor, an international in the production of watercolor, poster paint, finger paint, acrylic paint, oil paint, textile paint and wax crayons with a special focus on children’s products. Chief executives of the Messbar Co. which is a distributor of writing instruments, hobby/creative products and educational tools and Primo’s exclusive distributor in Iran, worked tirelessly with HEART to creative specially designed gifts from painting material for all the young artists, laureates of the 5th IFPPP festival.
The event was also held and partly sponsored by the Jam Center, a shopping center located at north-eastern Tehran where families and children stopped by shopping, while enjoying the painting stands, handicraft booths, learning gardening, and enjoy the rhymes of live streamed music every now and then. The final day of the busy week (Oct 10 - Mehr 18) and right after the National Children’s Week in Iran, top young Iranian artists, whose works had been recognized among top 100 painting of the festival, joined the HEART team to celebrate the opening of the 5th IFPPP in Tehran.
