We all go through similar steps when we create...being aware of the process can help turn ideas into reality.

Hey Creative Parents,

I'm in need of a miracle... and hoping this community can help me!

I've been working hard this last year trying to launch a new product - to bring the creative program we teach in our Seattle-based Schools into a new online format - so kids anywhere can take high quality drawing classes right from home. 

I'm trying to raise $30,000 in order to complete filming and editing so we can launch in the spring. We're using a funding platform called "Kickstarter" (http://kck.st/TKE3QD) that makes it easy for people to become a "Backer" of a creative project by "pre-ordering" products before they are ready. 

We're almost half-way towards or goal, but only have FOUR days left!!

If you like the sound of awesome art classes for your kids at home - please watch my Kickstarter video. If this is something you'd like for your kids - I'd love to have you join us as a Backer. A pledge of $150 will pre-purchase  both the Beginner and Intermediate programs. A pledge of $75 will pre-purchase the Beginner programs. With both pledges, I'll give immediate access to our three prototype videos also - so you can take class at home tonight!

We need 100 more Backers at the $150 level to reach our goal. If we do make the goal -  I'll have the programs fully produced and available in the Spring. 

As a exclusive treat just for this Creative Kids community  I'd like to give you all our first prototype lesson for FREE. You can signup at http://www.thriveart.com/signup and use the invite code 'creativekids' to access the private members area. I hope you'll check out the lesson and love it enough to become a Backer and help make this happen!

Thanks for listening and for sharing with friends to helping me reach more parents.

Here's to creative kids everywhere!
-Theresa

Thanks +Rachelle Doorley. We just closed our campaign and reached our goal. It was a whirlwind couple of days. So excited to get our program off the ground!

Hey all,

Thought you might find useful this excerpt from our "Parent Tips" videos that talks about how to create a supportive emotional environment for your child so they can work through any times of discomfort of not being happy with their artwork.

+Theresa Harris I love the hangouts too.  And it is awesome to be able to catch up later if it wasn't a good time to attend.  The pause function on videos is good for my life right now!  And so is watching in the middle of the night when everyone is in bed.

Introduction

Theresa Harris is the founder of THRIVE

She has two schools located in Seattle and her love of art is closely linked with its potential for confidence building and empowerment.

Since founding Thrive, Theresa has become a proud mom of two boys. The experience has only deepened her love of the school: "Now more than ever I appreciate parents' desire to provide their kids with valuable learning experiences. I'm so happy that Thrive can be a part of that."
