Other than to provide entertainment for children and teenagers and their adult companions, All Classical Portland had an ulterior motive when it launched the International Children's Arts Network: to create an alternative to YouTube, movies, TV shows and video games — all the "screen" stuff.

"I wanted this to be more of an audio program, because we all saw how screens are playing a large part in lives and I wanted this to be an outlet," said Suzanne Nance, president and CEO of All Classical Portland and ICAN. "And, we have to meet children and humans where they are. The idea is to hit play, download an activity, use good old crayons and listen."
