400 paintings are on display at this special exhibition.

Most of the paintings portray the fearful experiences those displaced children faced during their ordeal in rebel held areas.

The organizers of this painting exhibition are planning to award prizes to the ten best paintings.

This is the first time that a group of internally displaced children are displaying their art in Colombo.
