Our Business is focused on creating the opportunity for art projects in Primary and Nursery Schools, which culminates in spectacular exhibitions of pupils own original framed artwork.
Our company's headquarters and factory are based in North East Lincolnshire and occupy an area of approximately 8,000 square feet.
We were formed in 1997 and our network of local agents, which cover most of the UK, was established in 2002 and since then we have raised over £2,000,000 for school funds.
We are the originators of the concept of organising art projects in Primary and Nursery Schools, which culminate in spectacular exhibitions of pupils own framed artwork.
The service we provide to schools is entirely free and there is little or no disruption to the schools curriculum.
We provide the cartridge art paper for students, who create the artwork in their normal art classes. We also provide their teachers with guidance notes and samples to assist providing variety for the gallery.
Once completed we collect the artwork to be mounted and framed.
On the day of the exhibition our local agent returns to the school with the framed pictures and display screens to set up the gallery, usually in the school hall.
The children are given the first opportunity to view their own framed pictures in the gallery.
At the end of the school day the parents are invited to view the exhibition and given the opportunity to purchase their own child's framed masterpiece.
The extent of a discount is established between the PTA and the local agent and this will be reflected in the sale price of the framed pictures. This is a very important consideration which will certainly be influenced by location and the fact that, if this pitched too highly there will actually be a diminishing return on the funds generated for the school.
