Children are creators, not merely pupils, and we believe they should be schooled and raised as such. Unfortunately, many children face the “4th-grade slump” in creativity and must be empowered to overcome it. Creativity is characteristically “morally neutral” and, when imbued with empathy, advances civilization.


We foster creativity and develop empathy in American children and schoolchildren around the world through the arts, enabling young people to effectively navigate a complex world to build prosperity, peace, and preservation.


Ranked among the 25 Top Children’s Charities in the United States, we celebrate our 20th anniversary in 2017 with the launch of the 6th Arts Olympiad, a special issue of ChildArt magazine, and plans to produce the 6th World Children’s Festival on The National Mall in June 2019.
