About Art Masters, Inc.
Formed over 25 years ago, Art Masters, Inc. has served as the premier provider in interactive, multi-media Art education to elementary school students worldwide. As California's leading art program, Art Masters, Inc. has introduced Monet, Picasso, Van Gogh and a total of 35 master Artists to more than 2 million Kindergarten thru 8th graders. In 1985, Bonnie Steele began Art Masters, Inc. as a volunteer project for her daughter's sixth grade class at Del Lago School in Mission Viejo, CA. The program's popularity spread quickly, and today Art Masters, Inc. employs over 45 teachers. The program continues to grow with the help of thousands of volunteers. Though its roots are in California, Art Masters, Inc. has spread to every region of the U.S. and internationally. Several years ago, Mr. Stuart Groman, President of Art Masters, Inc. took on this role wanting to continue on with his late wife's legacy. Primarily focused on teaching young students the relevance of Art and the importance of keeping this tradition alive; Art Masters, Inc. contracts teachers who serve over 250 schools. The teachers work one on one with the students and the students look forward to these teachers coming to their schools. With all of the budget cuts, Art Masters, Inc. has been able to establish long term relationships with these schools and does not rely on government funding for continued success. The schools, parents and other charitable foundations provide all of the funding, making Art Masters, Inc. a very profitable and niche organization.

Glen Carnes, CEO of Global Vision Holdings, Inc., states: "Art Masters, Inc. is one of many companies we have pursued over the last 6 months based on its strong fundamentals and we look forward to the continued success of the company. Art Masters, Inc. fits right into our current portfolio of companies with strong cash flows and tremendous amounts of room for growth and profitability. We look forward to growing their presence in this marketplace, increasing the amount of schools they can service state wide and nationally, and moreover, continuing on with the legacy that Mr. Groman's wife established over 20 years ago. In addition, our current strategic plan for the next 6 months is to raise 3-5 million dollars in additional capital to continue to add to our growing portfolio of successful companies and increasing shareholder value."
