Online Art Classes for Kids
Power of art
Parents learn too
Creativity = Success
Current education systems are stressed teaching children the core academics they need for their future. “Non-essential” arts programs are being under funded or worse, abandoned altogether.
Meanwhile, businesses and organizations across the world are increasingly looking for creative and innovative individuals to keep pace with the rapidly changing landscape.
Exercising your child’s academic muscles alone won’t prepare them for this future. As parents we need to ensure their creativity is not squelched, but nurtured and exercised enough so they can bloom into a well-balanced innovators.

All people are born with the same level of creativity.
We can all dream up new inventions, have big and small ideas, and change our world. By the age of five, our children are using 80% of their creative potential. However, by the age of twelve, our children are using just 2% of their creative potential.
Creativity is a muscle that needs to be exercised like any other. The more exercise you do, the more confident and creative you’ll become.
Einstein could not have proposed the theory of relativity if he didn’t understand basic math. He also probably wouldn’t have come up with it if he didn’t have playing the violin to relax him when he got stuck in his math-brain thinking process.
All creative problem solving begins with a solid foundation. We begin with a step-by-step program to master the fundamentals of drawing in order to give children the essential principles of creative thinking.
As children progress through our multi-level program, we tackle increasingly complex projects.
Our courses begin with mastery of the basics and move on to explore self-expression and the generation of big ideas.
Finally, our advanced series plants the seeds that innovators need: Going against the status quo, risk taking and a willingness to make mistakes (and learning from them) is a key trait of innovators; our program gets kids comfortable and confident with the process.
Thrive’s online courses are video-based ART instruction.
Parents also get full access to our parent tips video library providing guidance on how to ensure your child’s success.
We’ll also connect you to our community of parents who share in the same goal of raising innovative children.
