Give your child the gift of learning to draw
Learning to draw will boost your child's creativity and increase their self-confidence. Our online drawing program will teach your child to put their dreams and ideas on paper.
Designed for kids
Over the last fifteen years, we've taught thousands of kids to draw in our two Seattle-based schools. Now our program is available in your home. Our online art class for kids has been designed from the ground-up specifically for kids aged 6-12.
Learn at their own pace
All kids learn differently. Video-based art instruction allows your child to pause the video when they need to. They can rewind if they missed what the teacher said, and take classes over and over again until they are ready and feel confident enough to move on to the next lesson. Classes can be taken on your iPad/tablet, laptop, or home computer.
Access never expires
A one-time purchases gives you life-long access to the videos. Your child can watch as many times as they like, and access never expires. There is no monthly subscription commitment. We understand as parents - things can get a little hectic sometimes! There's no pressure - take class on YOUR schedule at their pace.
Make learning fun
Learning should be fun! We've hand-picked six awesome topics to get your child excited about learning to draw. Each lesson includes an educational segment that gives academic information on the subject. Lessons include:
- Tropical Fish

- Dragon Designs

What parents are saying:
“I'm so happy”
I am so happy, I am practically in tears! My son Sam generally refuses to do any art projects due to his fine motor challenges. He is the only one in his class who does not have a self-portrait hanging on the wall. After two Thrive online classes, Sam came home from school with an amazing self-portrait!! I'm beyond thrilled that his confidence was boosted enough by just two lessons!

“Easy to follow”
The challenge was great for my son, and he felt such a sense of accomplishment in the end. The lessons were so easy for him to follow, yet there was room for creativity.
Christine. McKinney, TX.
My daughter worked all by herself for over an hour, and didn't want us to see until she was all done. She was so proud of herself!
Julie. Batavia, IL.
My 5 yr old daughter is loving this class. She is getting more confident by doing the lesson several times and is internalizing and learning your method. This video lesson is better than a live class because she can do it several times at her own pace.
