Indigenous Art

The Indigenous Youth Art program is designed to consist of high quality arts and cultural workshops that are focused on the education, health and wellbeing of Indigenous youth. It will also promote the artistic talents of Indigenous children across Australia with a program which is designed to capture the interests of those Indigenous children in regional and remote areas.


The Art Educational Programs are designed to help the children of Australia to advance artistic talent, they are written by some of Australia’s leading artists, designers, photographers.

We have access to Australia’s leading authors and Artists. These professional Art and Literacy tutors offer advanced techniques, tips and guidance for students to develop and build on their natural talents by offering workshops and mentorship, a forum is available for Indigenous children to display their visual arts work.

This program is being undertaken with sponsorship from Mining and Energy exploration companies in the areas of their operations.

In Memory of Rob Leonard, Our Founder

It is with great sadness that the Board of Directors, staff, and myself from the Children’s Charity Network must inform you of the passing of our founder, Mr Rob Leonard, following a 14-month battle with Cancer. We pass our condolences to Rob’s friends and family at this terrible time.

Rob was a wonderful, caring man with a passion for service and charity. His vision to influence young Australians through literacy 25 years ago has impacted thousands, who will all be saddened by this news. In honour of Rob, I look forward to growing his vision and continuing to advocate for the value of literacy and arts.

Please take a moment to reflect upon Rob’s impact on you, and remember his uncompromising belief in the power of Art and Writing.

Rob, you will be truly missed but never far away from our thoughts. 

May Rob’s memory be a blessing.
