My 8 year old Julia and I tried out their Beginner Lessons and we absolutely love them. Theresa, the art instructor and founder of Thrive, clearly explains step by step how to draw a specific picture in each lesson.
Through the video art classes, kids learn the basics of how to draw and they have the opportunity to come up with their own ideas. These fun lessons teach kids to innovate and create.

Bedtime Math is on a mission to make math a fun, natural part of kids’ everyday lives, just like the bedtime story.
As parents, we all know to read to our kids at night – but what about math? Just as reading at home teaches kids to love books, math at home can help kids learn to love numbers.
