WHO WE ARE

Heroes of Color is a non-profit art organization that promotes inclusion and diversity through art and education. Since March 2018, we have worked to serve the local Santa Clarita community by providing art workshops for kids and adults, professional development opportunities and an educational animated video series  created to help diversify the school curriculum. 

THE PROJECT

Our latest project in diversity is a children's book entitled "United By Art," which will celebrate the music, dance and cultures from around the world. While people of all ages and nationalities can benefit from this multicultural book, we are looking to reach  elementary school aged readers so that they can see and appreciate the beauty in our differences. We plan to create a coffee table book with over 200 pages of beautiful artwork, representing over 100 nations of the world. Samples pages are included below.

HOW FUNDS WILL BE SPENT

Almost 50% of the artwork for the book is already created. We anticipate another 3 months of art development. Roughly $5700 will go into printing, and shipping. Editing the book will be an estimated $1000. We would like to run a small digital marketing campaign $2000 via Instagram, facebook and twitter, to help promote the book once it is printed. The remaining budget of $1300 is an estimated amount we expect to have to pay in processing fees with gofundme. Should any extra money be available, it will be used to create giveaways like stickers, bookmarks and art prints. The expected date of completion of the book will be March 2019. 

This project will have an incredible impact in all communities regardless of demographics. The idea is to bring the nations of the world to the young readers who may not have the ability to travel due to limited financial resources. It can have a profound positive affect on the child to see how beautifully represented the nations are and how important their contributions are to the arts. I would be honored to have your support and hope that once you make a contribution, that you will share this with your close circle of family and friends as well.
