About EDU DESIGNS

MISSION: “Edu Designs is dedicated to produce and distribute multimedia materials for the education, motivation and character development of children”.  EDU DESIGNS gives children opportunities to develop their creativity, engage their analytical skills, and motivate them to follow their dreams. 

WE ARE BUILDING BRAINS AND HEARTS THROUGH THE ARTS!

From the founder:

Ruth Elliott-Hilsdon, Founder and Director of EDU DESIGNS

I feel great hope and excitement whenever I give an art presentation to children. The kids are thrilled to learn how to draw in ways they never knew they could. They learn to be part of the creative process by expressing their emotions through art and media. This gives them a satisfaction they can never get through merely watching shows or playing video games.

Experiencing our animated stories, like SOMEBODY NEEDS YOU, THE NIGHT PRINCESS, ALL THE TURNS ARE TAKEN and more, exposes them to character lessons they may not be getting anywhere else. Reaching the heart as well as the mind is our goal.

Last year we reached over 90,000 people with our programs and web resources.

When I speak with moms and dads, their eyes light up when I share how to improve their child’s character through free behavior charts we have online. Over and over again they tell me, “This is just what I’ve been looking for!”

Parents are exhausted, teachers are overloaded, but you have an advantage right now – you can improve the next generation – by giving to Edu Designs. 

Do you have a skill – or willing to share a little time? Your donations of physical or financial energy will make the difference for these kids.

Our hope for tomorrow is here TODAY – in children.

We’d love to hear from you.



Many Thanks,

PS – Isn’t it true that everything we have is because it was first given to us? Whether life, health, a sound mind, it is a gift. All along the line we get a chance to give back. That’s what Edu Designs is doing.

Will you join us?

Peter Marshall wisely said,

“Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned!” 

Our all-volunteer Board of Directors generously donates their time, so EVERY contribution helps, whatever the size.

Never miss an opportunity to do a good deed.

I am grateful for you.  ~Ruth Elliott-Hilsdon



About the Founder:

Ruth Elliott-Hilsdon, the founder of EDU DESIGNS, worked for decades in the Animation Industry, while raising her seven children.  36,000 diapers later, she became an Emmy Award Winning Artist, author and illustrator.  

In 2003 Ruth created GoMommyGO!®, to give parents tools to manage themselves as well as their children.  In 2007 she founded EDU DESIGNS to give children opportunities to engage their analytical skills, develop their creativity, and motivate them to make a positive impact in the world. She imparts enthusiasm to children through the arts and media.

Years ago many schools were forced to take art out of the classroom. Now they are beginning to bring it back. Her Art Textbook, “SEE What You’re LOOKING AT”, was the first to reference Math Standards and is now in use in many schools all over – the world, not just in the United States. Many thanks to D R Elliott who did researched to correctly reference the Math Standards K-8.

In her Art Presentations to schools, Ruth inspires children with tips for drawing, writing stories and ways to express themselves through art, encouraging students to work hard and keep up their dreams.

When we visit schools, appreciative parents and teachers applaud our efforts to provide materials that teach virtue and integrity, along with cognitive skills.

Experience is the best teacher!

When asked recently, “Are you a teacher?”, Ruth replied:

 “Yes. I do teach. I am a retired animator – I love sharing what I know with younger people – and – there’s no degree for that!” 

As a Parenting Coach and Public Speaker,  she encourages parents with the insight and tools gained from her experience raising her own seven children, as well as her ongoing studies of Child Development and Psychology.
