Before you know it, those teachable moments will be gone. 


Change the life of a child you know - before it's too late.

Are you letting them watch TV or playing video games for hours and hours on end? Of COURSE NOT! I know you're not the type who wants that for your child! We've all been there once or twice perhaps, then after an occasional slip of too much TV we face the consequenses - the bleary eyes, the irritability, the not being able (or wanting) to pay attention to any worthwhile activity (including parents); the lethargy, bad dreams at night, etc. 

Ruth Elliott, Founder, EDU Designs

Not worth it. And then the effort of trying to get back on track again with new rules: "This is IT, kids: ONLY ONE HOUR A DAY - and only AFTER homework and chores!" Then hearing the whining, moaning and crying that you are being mean and cruel, etc.

You know how it goes...

But there's something ELSE you can do now -

Get them Ruth Elliott's Art book to keep them busy INSTEAD! 

Emmy Award winning author and illustrator Ruth Elliott has packed over 30 years of experience in drawing into one amazing book. What makes this art textbook unique? She has distilled what she knows into simple language that anyone can understand in step by step lessons that build on each previous one, to discover a new skill in 'seeing' what you're looking at. Including tips on everything from how to hold your pencil to how animation works, plus a bonus section with art games.

This is the book that finally reveals the secrets of how children
(and adults)
can learn to draw!

In fact, that's the name of the book -


The mother of seven children, Ruth Elliott's dream has always been to help kids.  She was sad to see children denied the guidance and education that could increase their learning ability and lead to greater success in life. This increased her determination to provide TOOLS they NEED TO SUCCEED. That's what this book is all about! You can LEARN how to SEE! You can learn how to THINK about WHAT you are LOOKING AT! You can learn to "SEE WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING AT!"

I'm sure you don't want your kids to be abandoned to the TV, right?

What can you do?



And Drawing.

And CARING about the world around them.

It has been proven that the arts improve brain development!

When she heard that children involved in the arts improved their math scores by up to 15%, Ruth worked relentlessly, taking years perfecting the system that could lift awareness and improve manual dexterity - teaching the brain and hand to work together.

At the same time the essential character values of compassion and persistence are imparted through the book with anecdotes from the true story of Roscoe the squirrel she rescued as a baby.

Please do what you can.


A devoted husband to his beautiful wife, and father of three wonderful children, Chris Zurbuch ran a 100 Mile race to raise funds for EDU DESIGNS:

“I feel it is very important for our youth of today to have some sort of Creative arts and Books in all forms which are crucial to shaping Children's enrichment in their overall education. EDU is a wonderful non-profit organization that does just that for many less fortunate children. Every little bit helps to create a positive culture of growth and learning so these children can have some of the same opportunities as others to utilize their talents specifically in the arts…I have wanted to use my love of running into helping kids gain additional resources whether, food, housing or in this case, education.”

You can help too. No running required.
