Just by making simple drawings, these children make a difference.

Can you imagine their faces when they see their simple drawings converted to oil-paintings?

I made a drawing of a Giraffe. It has four legs and a long neck,...

Some of my friends made a giraffe too, or other animals...

 

founder of ArtKids.

My own daughter Soraya opened my eyes on seeing the spontaneity of children's drawings.

We usually notice how happy children (and their family) always respond to the attention and recognition.

And the children of Kenya? It stimulates, empowers them that they can cooperate with their drawings in the fundraising and work for their future.


A large part of the proceeds from these ArtKids-paintings goes to the children who made the original drawings.

 

is proud to present:

Together with my wife Christine I desire and work hard, to make a difference among communities, who are deprived economically and socially. We did this through setting up programs, projects and activities that can give them an opportunity to realize their potentials and improve their status and livelihood.

Nearly all exhibited paintings are inspired by drawings by children from Kenya.

 

Marion Aerts-Mhlanga offers a platform to the best artists from this African country.

Marion: "the sculptors from Zimbabwe make images based on both fantasy and reality and are always full of emotion and beauty. Furthermore, the sculptures show a lot of craftsmanship and artistry. A fascinating experience."
