一、總館長序

十年里程.再前進
佛光緣美術館總館長 / 如常法師

20180804 kids 03『國際佛光緣小藝術家獎』已邁入第十年,透過每屆徵畫以好人好事、慈悲等創作題材,這個活動凝聚了全世界三十萬兒童的參與,也造就了許多感人的故事。透過繪畫表達對生命的珍惜與關注,期望能給孩子純淨的思想與真善美的環境,希望孩子能從生活中學習「好事」「善事」將善的種子透過雙眼、雙手呈現出「好事」的作品,進而將「好」的念頭種入心中。

2004年首屆舉辦「兒童畫星雲大師」徵畫活動,海內外共匯集了1800件作品,有立體、版畫、素描、水彩等媒材作畫。參賽孩童大多沒有看過星雲大師,但透過照片或大人說故事,卻呈現了多元的畫風,孩子憑藉著驚人的想像力及創造力呈現了他們心中另一種形象的星雲大師,形象之多樣,令人驚嘆孩子們無限寬廣的內心空間。孩子們的畫,即便是畫的不像,只要是畫出心中想的、眼睛看到的、夢中的情境等,都值得讚賞。

2008-9特別以「慈悲觀世音」為題,也增設了慈悲組(即身心障礙的孩童)與徵畫主題相互呼應,兒童眼中的觀世音菩薩可能在寺院裡,也可能是救火英雄的消防員,或是自己的媽媽,在在表現出童年的無邪與對世界環境的期盼與理想,每一件作品是那麼真實與感動,這是我們籌辦「國際佛光緣小藝術家獎」的宗旨與目的。

2010-11年以「人人行三好─好心會放光」為主題的徵件,台灣、香港、新加坡、馬來西亞、菲律賓、加拿大、美國、澳洲、紐西蘭、斯里蘭卡、南非、中國、印度等十三個國家的小朋友共同參與,參賽作品總件數近一萬六千件。2014年第十屆徵畫得獎作品共326件,除出版畫冊紀念,也將至海內外14站展出,來自全世界有台灣、香港、中國、馬來西亞、新加坡、菲律賓、美國、紐西蘭、法國、英國等十個國家。總收件數近一萬五千件品,延續三好到「給人信心、給人歡喜、給人希望、給人方便」四給的理念,藉由藝術創作,養成生活習慣行三好,並學習尊重感恩、有愛心願奉獻的人,進而開展人性的本善。

謝謝所有參與的學校、團體、老師與家長,感謝教育部、國際佛光會中華總會、中華民國兒童美術教育學會、高雄市兒童美術教育學會及許多投入的專業評審老師、教授及同仁與義工,另外還要特別感謝家師 星雲大師對此活動的支持與指導,並以「公益信託星雲大師教育基金」支持此活動於海內外佛光緣美術館、各學校、團體展出。

佛光緣美術館秉持佛光山「以文化弘揚佛法」的宗旨,目的是藉由繪畫,潛移默化中提升兒童品德教育。無論是定期舉辦全省兒童巡迴美展、戶外兒童藝術營外,最終的目的,是希望給孩子歡喜的童年,及自信的自己。在欣賞兒童的作品同時,請給予最高的掌聲、最美的讚嘆,因為有你的讚美,孩子將在自信快樂中成長。

Making Another Giant Leap after Ten Years of Achievements
Fo Guang Yuan Art Gallery Headquarters Curator / Shih Ru Chang

20180804 kids 042014 marks the tenth year of the International Fo Guang Yuan Young Artist Awards. This annual event, with creative themes in honor of good deeds and good people, as well as their merciful hearts, has drawn some 300,000 children from across the globe to take part. There are many touching stories behind every work of art by the participants. The children have expressed their concern towards, and efforts in, cherishing life through their paintings and it is expected that the event can create an environment of truth, goodness and beauty, where children can grow up with pure minds. It is also hoped that the children can draw good deeds they have seen, and learn how to keep a “good” mind and practice “good deeds” in their daily life.

In 2004, the year when this painting contest was launched, the theme was: “Master Hsing Yun in the Eyes of Children”. There were some 1800 paintings from home and abroad in the contest, with the creative media ranging across 3-D, graphic art, sketches, watercolor, etc. Though many of the children taking part had not seen the Master himself, they created works of diverse styles by referring either to the Master’s photos or to the stories their parents had told them about him. Regarding their paintings, we will be stunned by their wild imagination and creativity, as well as how differently Master Hsing Yun could be portrayed in the infinite realm of children’s minds. Their paintings, though not necessarily lifelike, truly deserve our admiration as the children have created art, one piece after another, whether such works were derived from what they had thought, what they had seen, or what had appeared in their dreams.

20180804 kids 02The creative theme “Kind and Compassionate Avalokitesvara” was the theme for 2008 and 2009. The “Mercy Group”, echoing the theme, was added to the contest to encourage the participation of physically or mentally challenged children. The goddess in the eyes of the children may take the form of statues in temples, or surprisingly, of firefighters or their mothers. No matter how they perceive or imagine the goddess, the images of the goddess represent childhood innocence and the children’s expectations of the world. Every single work is so close to our minds and so touching that they fully embody the objective of this contest.

2010 and 2011 focused on the theme “Practice Three Acts of Goodness: Pure Minds Radiate” with nearly 16,000 works from children in 13 countries: Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Canada, the US, Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, South Africa, China and India. The tenth award-winning artworks of 2014 reached the number of 326. In addition to publishing an album to memorize the event, we will also have touring exhibitions in 14 different venues domestically and abroad, which include Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, USA, New Zealand, France, and the UK. In total we received close to fifteen thousand entries. From Three Goodness –‘give people confidence, give people joy, give people hope, and give people convenience’ to Four Giving, using the means of artistic creation, participants cultivate good behavior of Three Goodness in daily life, learn to respect, give gratitude, love and devote to others, and show the goodness in human nature.

20180804 kids 06Here I would like to extend my gratitude to all the schools, groups, teachers and parents involved in this event, as well as the Ministry of Education; Buddha’s Light International Association R.O.C.; Kids Art Education Academy, ROC; Kaohsiung Children Art Education Institute; and numerous judges, professors, staff members and volunteers. In particular, I am highly grateful to Master Hsing Yun for his support and guidance for the event. Exhibitions at various Fo Guang Yuan art galleries, schools, or organizations are attributed to the Venerable Master Hsing Yun Public Education Trust Fund. The Fo Guang Yuan Art Gallery has hosted this painting contest by upholding Fo Guang Shan’s philosophy of “promoting Buddhism through culture”; it aims to cultivate children’s sense of morality through the art of painting. Whether it is the nationwide children’s art exhibition held regularly, or the outdoor children art camp, the ultimate goal is for the children to have a happy childhood and build their self-confidence. We hope you can applaud and admire the children’s creations as much as you can, as your encouragement is the cornerstone for those children to grow up happily and face challenges confidently.

二、評審序

20180804 kids 05心是畫師養慧命
中華民國兒童美術教育學會 / 理事長吳隆榮

星雲大師在「人間佛教語錄」中曾言:「心可以畫出美麗的世界,美好的人間,所以說『心如工畫師,能畫種種物。』假如我們觀念裡,看到每一個人都存有感謝的心,會覺得這個世界很美好 。」大師此言,將佛法與繪畫的奧密微妙,作了精闢的開示。佛法對我們的社會教化、哲學思想影響甚深,舉凡建築、雕刻、音樂、舞蹈、文學、繪畫等,無不內化其中。尤其是在藝術的相容相續中,更值得吾人探索思維。

本屆佛光緣小藝術家獎兒童徵畫活動,以星雲大師所提倡的「給人信心、給人歡喜、給人希望、給人方便。」四給,作為創作理念,將其落實於日常生活之中,當兒童因給予而體會到「施比受有福」的道理時,感恩謙恭之情必油然而生,如此當能感受到生命美好燦然的意義。主辦單位期盼兒童們能提起彩筆,彩繪出感動體悟的小小心靈境界,使抽象的感受轉化成具象的畫面,發心可貴意義深遠。

徵賽的畫作來自海內外,國內分成國中、國小高、中、低年級,及幼兒園,共計五組。國外以5-15歲,同等國內年齡分組之在學學童,在四給的主題訴求下,創作媒材不拘,鼓勵學童利用創新媒材,發揮創意,建立個體風格。我們收到極為豐富的參賽作品,真情流露,生動感人。在獲獎的畫作裡,不但能欣賞到親切、祥和的畫面,難能可貴的是,得獎的小藝術家們能夠將生活中多方面的實質經驗,統整為焦點化的表現,使其轉化成藝術性的畫面,率真質樸令人驚艷嘆服。

國際佛光緣小藝術家獎徵畫活動已屆十周年,多年來,欣見獲獎之小藝術家們有多人仍堅守藝術創作,孜孜不息的勤奮耕耘,也看到了有人長期的投入佛光緣美術館,擔任小志工,為觀賞者進行導覽的工作,這是十年來所播種的善緣種籽,讓美學落實為生命養分,開啟內心資源的美感能量。

佛法有八萬四千法門,眾法門皆是平等,倘若因緣於繪畫此一法門,深入實踐,當可助益吾人開悟、開慧,明心見性。實踐三好四給,是人間佛教的入世法門,感念佛光山寺能藉由小藝術家的兒童彩繪活動,讓學童們因此佛法而緣分齊聚,種下菩提根苗,我們的生命有限,然藝術是恆久彌新的。但願所有參賽的小藝術家們,莫忘初心,能將藝術融入生活,續養慧命,弘揚人間佛教。

善哉!善哉!

20180804 kids 08Heart As A Painter Cultivates Wisdom
President of Kids Art Education Academy, ROC / Wu Long Rong

Venerable Master Hsing Yun said in the ‘Humanistic Buddhism Quotes’ that ‘A heart can paint beautiful universe, and a wonderful mortal world. Therefore we say “the heart is like a painter. It paints everything”. If in our minds we treat everyone with gratitude, we would perceive the world as a lovely place.’ The Master’s words give penetrating insight for the profound teaching of Buddhism and painting. Buddhist teaching has great influence on our societal cultivation and philosophical thinking. Ranging from architecture, sculpture, music, dance, literature to painting, Buddhist teaching is embedded in all of them. The area of art is especially worthy of investigation.

This year’s Fo Guang Yuan Young Artist Drawing Competition promotes Venerable Master Hsiung Yun’s ideal of the Four Giving, ‘Give people confidence, give people joy, give people hope, and give people convenience’, in hopes of implementing the teaching into real life.When children have real life experience of ‘giving is better than receiving’, a sense of gratitude and humility would derive from within. This way they can feel the splendid significance of life. The sponsor unit wishes for children to pick up their coloring pencils and draw what touches their young hearts. To put abstract feelings into concrete pictures is a valuable and meaningful action.

20180804 kids 07Drawings for this competition come from local and overseas contestants. The local is divided into junior high school, upper, middle and lower elementary school, and kindergarten, five groups in total. The overseas group classification is the same as the local’s. Within the framework of The Four Giving, the children are encouraged to use various materials to wave their creative wand and establish their own style. We received numerous entries; their feelings true, their emotions touching. In the award-winning pieces, we can see not only kind and peaceful expressions, but what’s more rare and commendable is the young artists’ ability to transform life experience into focused artwork. Their simple and innocent quality is truly admirable.

It’s been ten years since we first started the Fo Guang Yuan Young Artist Drawing Competition. For all these years, we are happy to see that many young artists diligently continue their art creation. And we also see the long-term devotion of volunteers who guide the viewers into the world of art. These are the seeds of good intentions we have been planting for ten years, so that beauty could nourish life, and open the door of aesthetic energy.

There are hundreds and thousands of entryways for Buddhism, all of them equal. If drawing can bring us into the door and inspire further learning, it can also help us gain wisdom and enlightenment. To practice the Three Goodness and the Four Giving is the Humanistic Buddhism’s way of engaging followers into the world. Thanks for the Fo Guang Shan’s young artist drawing activity, the children have the chance to gather for the Buddhist teaching, and take root in bodhi. Our life will end, but art goes on. It is my wish that all the young artists remember their initial intentions to bring art into real life, cultivate wisdom and propagate Humanistic Buddhism.

Good. Very good indeed!

20180804 kids 10以一隻彩筆,描繪和諧與光明的「三好」家園
台灣中部美術協會理事長 / 倪朝龍

「以文化弘揚佛法」的宗旨,提昇生活美學、人文素養與改善社會善良風氣,佛光緣美術館長年來主辦多項深入生活、學校與社會的人文、藝術活動。特別是兒童徵畫活動,迄今已辦了整整十年。

第十屆徵畫以「三好」「四給」為訴求,讓兒童經由浸潤於美的感動,開發「心」的知覺、感受、思考,進而學習到星雲大師所提倡的「三好運動」─做好事、說好話、存好心,「四給」給人信心、給人歡喜、給人希望、給人方便,藉此推動兒童品德教育,可謂用心良深!十年來家長、學校熱絡支持,層面更擴及十四個國家,成為國內參與人數、廣度及影響最為深遠的繪畫活動,好生感動!

今年,總徵件數近15000件,經初審、複審,最後擇優選出決選得獎作品326件,五位評審秉公平、公正原則進行長達一天審慎的評審,優秀作品終於脫穎而出。全程看到熱心的義工團隊高效率的演出,打從內心讚嘆,說實話,如果沒有屏東館義工遠程趕來支援,還真難在一天內竟其功呢,辛苦大家了!


繪畫對兒童來說,是其內在心象的反射,每件作品都自展現孩子樂在其中,純真直觀的妙趣。所以每次評審或指導兒童畫作,也會因那一份無邪、浪漫、強烈、大膽,喜悅油然而生。這一次也一樣,普遍的看到孩子豐富的想像力、創意、組織能力和愛心,至感欣慰。

只是,因屬主題式徵畫,「三好」「四給」看似簡單,卻需有故事般的鋪述,某一些孩子的人物表現就顯得較生硬了,自由揮灑度也多少降低;尤其,近年來國小美勞課程在學校課程中僅是「藝術與人文」中的一環,造成教學時數縮減,又因師資育成體系改變,美教師資幾成斷層,在教師專業度不夠,不了解所謂教育心理學,不懂得尊重孩子的自主意識與創意,授意或肆意加筆修改的情況越顯嚴重,著著實實令人為兒童藝術教育的未來而擔心。

所幸,民間尚有一些社團、企業,宗教團體如佛光山等不離不棄持續推動美育文化,我們還能存著一份期盼,在大家齊心努力下,能為美育未來,我們的家庭、社會、國家帶來和諧與光明。

20180804 kids 11With a Coloring Pencil, Draw Harmonious and Bright Homeland of ‘Three-Goodness’
Director of the Mid-Taiwan Art Association / Ni Chao Long

With the purpose of ‘propagating Buddhism through culture’, elevating life esthetics, humanistic accomplishment and improving kindhearted practice in the society, the curator of Fo Guang Yuan Art Gallery has long held various humanistic and artistic activities that go deeply into schools and the society. Especially the Young Artist Drawing Competition, it’s been a whole decade since it was first held.

The tenth drawing competition aspires after ‘Three Goodness’ and ‘Four Giving’. It allows children to develop ‘heart’ awareness, feelings, and thinking through immersing in beauty, and then advance to learning Master Hsing Yun’s ‘Three Goodness’ – do good things, say good words and have good thoughts, as well as ‘Four Giving’ – give people confidence, give people joy, give people hope, and give people convenience. The effort that’s put into children’s moral education is truly solid. Over the past ten years, parents and schools have offered their support passionately, and the events have reached fourteen countries. Nationwide, this drawing competition has attracted most contestants and reached the farthest corners. It is really touching.

This year, we received almost 15000 entries, and after the preliminary and second review, finally 326 award-winning pieces were selected. The five judges carefully applied just and fair discernment to review the artworks, and after a day’s work, the outstanding artworks were finally selected. Throughout the process, we saw enthusiastic volunteers perform with great efficiency, and it was a sight to admire. To be frank, if it hadn’t been for the volunteers from far away Ping-Tung, we wouldn’t have finished in one day. Great work, everyone!

20180804 kids 09For children, drawing is a reflection of their inner self. Their enjoyment, innocence and intuitive fun can be seen in every piece. So every time we judge or guide children to draw, their innocence, romance, intensity and boldness arouse a sense of pleasure within us. It was the same this time. We were so happy to see the richness of children’s imagination, creativity, organizational abilities and love.

However, the theme-based ‘Three Goodness’ and ‘Four Giving’ drawing competition may seem simple, it required story-like descriptions. So some children’s character display seemed a little stiff, in consequence their free expression was decreased. Moreover, in recent years the art class in elementary schools is only a part of the ‘Art & Humanism’ field, this reduces the teaching hours; also due to the change in the teacher-training system, there has been a gap in art teachers. When teachers lack proficiency , don’t have knowledge of educational psychology, and can’t respect children’s independence and creativity, their attempt to alter children’s artwork would become a serious issue. This is a great cause of concern for the future of our children’s art education.

Fortunately, there are organizations, corporations and religious societies such as Fo Guang Shan continuously promoting art culture, so we can still have hopes for a bright future in art education. With our united effort, we hope to bring harmony and light to our homes, the society and the country.

20180804 kids 13自己內心的發光
中華民國兒童美術教育學會理事 / 盧安來

財團法人佛光山文教基金會、佛光緣美術館總部舉辦「國際佛光緣小藝術家獎」已歷十屆,不僅件數多,評審過程嚴謹,所選出的作品件件精彩,本屆有幸擔任評審,個人對本次活動觀感,提供讀者參考:

一、感謝主辦單位之用心。本活動肩負著社會藝術教育之功能,兒童透過星雲大師所提倡「給人信心、給人歡喜、給人希望、給人方便」之理念,觀察生活周遭中之人、事、物,表現在作品上,不僅進行了文化交流,也給了自己內心的發光。

二、兒童繪畫創作表現有著他自己獨特的心靈感受,有著他純真的自發性表現,有著他想要傳達的語言,大人(家長或老師)擔任引導者的角色不予干涉太多孩子的想法。本次活動也許競爭激烈為求得獎求好心切,有些作品過度指導甚至代筆。反而失去意義也喪失了孩子的自主性與自信心,造成孩子的傷害實在得不償失也很可惜。

三、十屆的活動實屬不易,也從收件的件數之多,可得知廣獲了大眾兒童與家長的認同,但一個比賽一個活動不僅是提供一個舞台給參與者,更希望參與者能在舞台上有更多勝利的果實。「給人信心、給人歡喜、給人希望、給人方便」主辦單位未來可增加更多的獎項,給予參與者更多信心、更多歡喜、更多希望、更多方便。更多展現、更多展出的機會。

Inner Light
Director of Kids Art Education Academy, ROC / Lu An-Lai

20180804 kids 15Fo Guang Shan Foundation for Buddhist Culture & Education and the Headquarters of Fo Guang Yuan Art Gallery together have held the ‘International Fo Guang Yuan Young Artist Award’ for ten years. The entries received were numerous, and the reviewing procedure careful. Every piece selected was outstanding. It was my honor to be a reviewer this year, and here are my thoughts about the event:

1.I want to thank the hosting unit for it dedication. This event shoulders the function of social art education. Through Master Hsing Yun’s propagation of ‘give people confidence, give people joy, give people hope, and give people convenience’, children have the chance to observe the people and things around them, and put them in their drawings. This not only promotes cultural exchange, it also gives the children a stage to shine their inner light.

2.Children’s creative drawings carry their own unique feelings of the soul. They show spontaneity and convey meaning, which the adults (parents or teachers) shouldn’t interfere too much. This event might be highly competitive and some adults were so eager for the children to win that they imposed their will onto the children or even drew for them. This takes away the meaning and deprives the children of their autonomy and confidence. This causes harm to the children and is more a loss than gain. What a shame.

3.To go on for the tenth year is not an easy thing. But from the numerous entries we know that the event is approved by children and parents alike. A competition not only offers a stage for the ocntestants, but it also bears the hope for the contestants to reap more fruit of success. “Give people confidence, give people joy, give people hope, and give people conveience’. Hope the hosting unit can increase the number of awards in the future, to give the contestants more confidence, more joy, more hope, more convenience, and more opportunity to show.
