Funds raised by sales of art come full circle to help more children to access creative resources & opportunities.

Childish is a social business that celebrates creativity & develops creative opportunities for children.

 

Childish features children on our website and their artwork in our online store. Visitors can buy prints of exciting and unique images created by children from different ages, cultures, and locations.

In collaboration with local and international arts organizations, profits raised through sale of artworks will go back to the community, in various forms including supplies, scholarships, new program development and community projects.

We believe significant value can be created, even on a micro-level, providing children with the gift of exposure to art.

Childish showcases artwork from all over the world.

Childish will feature collections from different regions, in both developed and developing countries. We believe creativity transcends culture and can be healing, inspiring, and enriching, for any community it reaches.

Childish Purpose

Our goal is to develop a full-circle creative community for children, which contributes by way of inspiration, education, recognition and financial support.
