Visual arts and writing allow military children to communicate pride in their parents, celebrate their military-connected lives and acknowledge their grief and worry through art. Since MCEC began the “Call for the Arts” in 2002, thousands of military children - from all over the world, from every service, of all ages - have mailed us their drawings, poems, and interpretations of what it means to be a military child.
Artwork in the visual arts is featured at the MCEC Annual conference each year. It is utilized in the On The Move magazine, the annual calendar, the annual conference program, and other MCEC publications.
Writing, including essays, poetry, and short stories, is featured in the annual conference program, the On The Move magazine, the annual calendar, and other MCEC publications.
