Here is an article, about this company... started by a private lesson art
teacher, that markets kids art on tshirts, gift bags, etc. Some big companies
have bitten into this idea. I bought a few of the bags at a dollar store,
thougth the designs were great !, But... on reading more about it... I'm not
quite sure if I like this idea or not.
Kids get 10% of the sales for their design. She has a group of about 42 of
her students that produce the designs. Not sure what the teacher (who runs
this company with her husband) gets as her percentage.
Of course this article was on their website, so it speaks well about their
business. I have to see if there are any articles elsewhere that give another
point of view.

WOULD i FEEL DIFFERENTLY IF IT WAS FOR A CHARITABLE CAUSE...
Like I said earlier, I'm mulling this over as to what I think.
Gut impression says, not kosher but that is just me.
I need to research this more.
Let me know what you all think... this should be a good hot thread of
discussion to start the Summer off with some fireworks ;)
Fire away,
Christine Besack :)
