Keeping Arts Alive as Simple as Simply Charly; New Company Aims to Make Arts Education Not Only Accessible but Also Fun

Carlini Media, a fast-growing multimedia company spearheaded by musician and entrepreneur Charles Carlini, has launched a new online educational division that will focus on the art, science, music, literature, philosophy, architectural, political and economic world's leading historical figures. Currently covering such legends as Charlie Chaplin, Albert Einstein, Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, W. B. Yeats, Pablo Picasso, Le Corbusier, Igor Stravinsky and Salvador Dali - and with dozens more planned for the near future, including Elvis, Napoleon, Kafka and Darwin.

Simply Charly's mission is to become a one-stop source for everything one desires to know about the groundbreaking individuals it covers. Inquiring minds seeking to learn more about the historical world's most notable movers and shakers can do so online at

When the Council for Basic Education—a nonprofit organization that advocates for liberal arts subjects—conducted a study a few years back, 33 percent of school principals predicted they would witness decreases in the time their districts devote to the arts over the next two years. This trend was even more highly anticipated in schools with large percentages of minority students, where 42 percent of principals made the same dire prediction. Since that survey, those prognostications have, sadly, been becoming a reality in public schools across the nation. In the years since, liberal art subjects like foreign languages, music and art history have taken major hits but even other non-essential electives like political science and economics have experienced cutbacks.

As a musician himself, Simply Charly's founder, Charles Carlini, is personally pained by this arts-related educational decline … so much so that he decided to do something about it. Says Carlini of his latest entrepreneurial endeavor, "I developed the Simply Charly suite of sites to be a fun, accessible, interactive and engaging learning experience. Designed for all ages, their aim is to buck the current educational trend that places an emphasis on reading, writing and math at the expense of art, music and other personally enriching electives."

The Simply Charly website more than lives up to its fun and engaging mission. The first thing that visitors to the sites will notice greeting them is a lively caricature version of the historical figure they've come to learn about. From there, a clean layout with "About," "Blog," “Read,” "Watch," "Listen" and "Learn" tabs points browsers to accurate and thorough coverage of the featured historical individual. In this way, Simply Charly hopes to supplement the liberal arts education that so many of today's public schoolchildren are missing out on. To further accomplish this aim, the company has employed experts from the world's top universities to answer user-submitted questions. Answers to "Ask The Expert" requests will be supplied within 48 hours of receipt.
