Stone Soup was founded in 1973 by William Rubel and Gerry Mandel, who continue to run the organization today. We incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit called the Children’s Art Foundation. Our purpose is to encourage children to write and draw by inspiring them with examples of the best work by their peers. In addition to publishing Stone Soup, the Children’s Art Foundation maintains a collection of international children’s art. With more than 1000 high quality works of art by children from 36 countries, the Children’s Art Foundation’s collection is one of the finest children’s art collections in the world. We offer a growing selection of prints from the collection in the Stone Soup Store.
