We, the Colours4Children foundation, are committed to improve future prospects of children in Cambodia and other developing countries by giving illustration workshops. We let children discover their creative talent and experience the fun of drawing and coloring. Besides stimulating creativity illustration also reinforces other skills, such as literacy and numeracy. This brings kids one step closer to a better life.
The foundation is an initiative of Maaike Slingerland, illustrator and teacher in Illustration. She is one of the twelve teachers in the Netherlands that caters illustration classes for children in disadvantaged neighborhoods on behalf of the Fiep Westendorp Foundation.
