Art education is important to ensure that humanity remains creative, compassionate and thoughtful. Let's help children to have fun with art!

by Vincent and Frida in London, England, United Kingdom

New stretch target

At the moment first focus is establish "Vincent and Frida" in London, but it would be amazing to take it to other UK cities too. I am raising money for the marketing campaign.

I am Alla Maniataki and I am the founder of Vincent and Frida. This idea was born as a result realising how much richer and fulfilled my life became since I discovered art appreciation. 

Educating children is one of the biggest responsibilities parent has. Parents want the best for children and I want to make a case for the art history to be included for consideration when thinking about best education. 

The best way I can describe how art history education works is by linking it to the photosynthesis process in plants. You cannot immediately see what light does for a plant, but you see it grow, strengthen and blossom as a result of suitable lighting. Art history helps children to grow up thinking "I wonder..." when they come across something new. And that is such an amazing skill.

The money would help to establish "Vincent and Frida" in London's educational space by creating a marketing campaign. I have a passion for my business, grit and plenty of enthusiasm, but "Vincent and Frida" needs a professional advice and funds to create effective marketing campaign.
