Foster a Creative Genius

My name is Katie Helms, I am an artist and a teacher. In the last three years, I designed a creativity workshop for parents and teachers, quit my corporate childcare job to start a cooperative school with a group of families, started an

Etsy page

and an

art business

and began writing a


about my teaching and art making process.

I have a vision for a series of video courses and workshops for adults and there are some things I need to do to make that possible. Some of those things cost a significant amount of money. 

Will you help me to gather funds to:

* hire a web designer

* purchase some video equipment

* hire some help with video editing

* bring my gifts to a wider audience including yourself?

The video series is evolving now and will be a combination of the best parts of all my playshops and teaching and creative coaching experience. Each class will be a guide toward making powerful images that tap into the stories we tell ourselves.

This is an invitation to think of any donation you can make as an investment in the creative health of our world. Plus, you might get some goodies out of it! It's a win/win/win situation.

This is a love letter.
