he Kickstarter campaign is coming to an end but even though arTree did not raise enough funds for its first year, it generated a lot of interest and new possibilities. I am happy to say that arTree is alive and kicking.
First, I would like to thank you all for supporting the idea and spreading the word. I am thrilled to see such an interest and passion from you guys. It is very rewarding to see how many people care about art.
Over the last couple of weeks arTree went through a lot of changes and ups and downs… we have been featured in couple of newspapers, websites and blogs. A lot of people expressed interest in trying out the projects in classroom settings (teachers as well as homeschoolers).
After a lot of meetings and discussions, we have decided to change the format of the magazine a little bit – to develop art curriculums for preschoolers (and later elementary-schooled-aged kids). But it will not be only for the educators… we’d love to offer it to all of you guys as well – at least as downloadable .pdfs and sample projects. There will still be step-by-step directions with a lot of variations, art techniques and artists… and a lot of other activities to do with your kids – but it will be more focused on the 3-5 year-olds and will be centered around kid-friendly themes (flowers, animals, water…).
So, again – thank you all for your support. I would not be able to push on without you, guys.
Thank you and stay in touch,
Eva, creator of arTree
