About the Creativity School
Our mission at Creativity School is to inspire and empower children in a kind and creative way to help parents raise happy, creative, and confident kids.
The heart of Creativity School is for children to gain art skills, personal growth, and a creativity community where they feel they belong.
Your child will not receive academic classes at Creativity School. Your child will also not get mandatory homework. Homework is completely optional with rewards as incentives.

We have classes that are catered to children as young as 5, all the way up to highschoolers.
Yes! You can now choose between an annual subscription or a monthly subscription. Please see our sales page for details on current prices.
The foundation skills of the classess will be the same as the Summer Camp. However, we will offer brand new classes for your child with new lessons. The experience in Creative Kids Live and the Summer Camp will be slightly different as in Creative Kids Live have weekly classes and Summer Camp will be daily classes.
We make sure that all of our instructors are award-winning artists, illustrators, and authors so that your child will learn from the experts. Arree himself screens the instructors to ensure that your child gets only the best.
Definitely! If you have their email address you can use it to register them when you purchase the class. You can also buy the class using your own email address, and then we will change the email on our end once you are ready to transfer the class.
For the safety and privacy of the children in our group, we ask that adults find other sources of learning creative skills.
If you choose the annual membership, we'll send you a reminder email a week before your subscription ends. For monthly subscriptions, it will be renewed automatically on your renewal date, which is the day of the month you originally registered and paid for your membership. So for example, if you registered and paid for your first month on the 5th of the month, that is now your renewal date going forward.
Your renewal date is the day you registered and paid for your membership. We will debit on that same date every time.
About the Classes
To find out the classes that are offered in the current month, please check out here.
We don't have strict prerequisites, but we do want to give your child the best chance at success. It will make more sense for them to develop their skills by starting with the beginning courses. However, if they have attended our previous camps, they can explore more of the advanced sessions.
Each Live Course will meet thrice a week. We offer three different course schedules: Tues, Thurs, and Fri. Class time will be every 3:30 PM PST / 6:30 PM EST. And, of course, you will have full access to all of the class replays!
Each class is one hour long, and usually consists of 45 minutes of instruction time and 15 minutes for Q&A.
We roughly organize our classes by age group, but that is just a reference. Parents know their kids' abilities the best! If you believe your 6-year -old child is ready for an advanced class, then by all means, go for it!
You will be able to attend our Free Week of classes to give your child a preview of the classes we'll be conducting. This way you can decide which classes your child may be interested in.
If you missed our FREE Week Live classes, you can watch the replays on this link.
When you pay for one Live Course, you'll be able to access the class session through ONE device. If your children would like to share ONE device while attending the class, that would still count as one live course. It's fun for us to see siblings sharing a device and creating art together! If you have two children who would like to attend the same course using different devices, you can buy a 2nd Live Course for a steeply discounted price.
To be eligible to win the homework challenge, homework should be posted in our Facebook group and/or on Instagram. In the Facebook group, you don't need to tag anyone.
For Instagram you will need to use the following hashtags:

Homework is not mandatory, but it will be good to encourage kids to do their homework as this will further enhance their skills. Assessments and grades won't be given. Rather than grades, we'd like for them to build on their confidence, perserverance and creativity.
You can always watch the replay if you can't attend the class live. They are always available the same day.
You can check the current pricing here.
We offer term, monthly, and annual subscription passes which will allow you to choose your preferred course at an affordable price.
Yes! Your payment invoice will be automatically generated and sent to you once we debit your payment. You should receive it in your email.
Our classes are so affordable because we're already offering a group discount! Smaller classes would cost 7-10 times as much and would not be in line with our mission.
Our pricing is already affordable to ensure that everyone can attend our classes. For an even greater value, you can purchase a 2 live courses pass for your children so they will be able to attend 2 different live classes per term.
We have done our best to provide classes at a rate that is affordable for most families. We understand that during these times, it is still not in everyone's price range. This is one of the reasons we offer a free week every month. Unfortunatley, we are not able to reduce prices or offer other financial assistance.
You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Size and Interaction
Yes, each class size is limited, and some classes will be popular. For example, the collage and painting classes are very popular and will fill up quickly. To get the class and time slot you want, register now rather than waiting. We'll email you a form to choose your class, and it will be first-come, first-served. So it's good to register early.
Since our mission is to provide affordable LIVE classes for ALL children, we keep our costs down by allowing larger class sizes.
Yes, all participants will be in the same Zoom room (embedded in your Thinkific platform) with the instructor. This gives them an opportunity to raise their hand and have a chance to be called on. However, due to the size of our classes, we cannot guarantee that they will be called on. In fact, the chances are small. So, we want to set the proper expectations. Why do we do it this way? We want to make high-quality art lessons available to all, so we are making it really affordable. A smaller class size would cost hundreds of dollars and would not be accessible to all kids.
At the moment, we only have the Facebook private group to share your child's homework.
Yes, all replays will be available by 9pm PT after the live session. The recordings will be uploaded in your Thinkific Platform.
Yes, replays will be available on your Thinkific platform. If you want to watch the Lesson Replay (Day 1), you can watch it on the Replay Course.
