Ruth Elliott’s ART assemblies promote positive attitudes, better behavior & academic achievement, as well as spatial awareness, which has been shown to raise math scores.

The Arts can increase math scores by up to 15%!

Ruth wrote the first art textbook to reference K-8 Math standards and shares it with her Art Presentations!

Art Assemblies with Ruth Elliott

What will happen during the assemblies?

During the presentations students enjoy drawing tips from Emmy Award winning author and artist Ruth Elliott! Her years of experience in the animation industry have given her a desire to share her love of art and stories with children, who enjoy participating and learning valuable character lessons.


Drawing instruction may include all or part of the following: Understanding structure, perspective, expressing emotions, character development, story progression and basic animation.

We always provide paper for the children to draw on.

I founded EDU DESIGNS after my 7 kids grew up and I realized there were more children out there who needed positive media and educational resources to lift them up. Your support allows us to nurture the little ones with high ideals of good character, which will help the REST of us when THEY become the adults in charge!
