We inspire young minds (and those young at heart) around the world to EXPAND their thinking from flat to 3-D through the awesome power of the visual arts.

Through personal appearances, webcasts, and books, we teach skills needed to succeed in the visual arts and in LIFE!

Visual Arts helps DEFINE a society's IMAGINATION.

The Imagination Initiative celebrates this through empowering each individual's creative potential

"Imagination is more important than knowledge." -Albert Einstein
