What kind of art is allowed on the Buy Kid Art website?

Only original work is allowed.

Due to copyright infringement issues, we can't allow art depicting protected characters or art inspired by protected characters. 

This means that although your child may love to draw Pokemon or My Little Pony, that art isn't a good fit for the Buy Kid Art site because those are copyrighted characters.

Part of the submission process involves a review process to ensure the submitted art doesn't violate copyrighted work.

Yes! Here is a great explanation of how to do that.

What happens to an artist's work if they end their membership?


When a Buy Kid Art membership ends, the artist's page and all products are removed from the website. 

Once an artist is done being a Buy Kid Art artist, their work WILL NOT be sold on the site (Buy Kid Art artists always retain ownership of their work).

Their work MAY appear in social media, blog posts, and other Buy Kid Art promotions.
