Welcome!  

I'm on a journey and YOU'RE INVITED to come along! So pack your bag and meet me at the harbor. We're shipping out!

Kickstarter --> 100 Sailboats - a Make/100 Project

WHO am I?
Hello, my name is Christine Pointeau and I'm an Artist Illustrator and Self-published Author. I'm also a high school and middle school art teacher with over 20 years of classroom experience looking to transition out of the classroom and into my personal studio. 

To that end I publish books, mainly the Travel With Me series with drawing, paintings, sketches and narratives of trips or events I attend here and there. I'm also building an online Art Program for kids, an expression of my life's work as a teacher. 

WHAT is Patreon?
Patreon is a direct connection between artists and art enthusiasts. Through this private community you enter a centuries old tradition of art patronage in exchange for art rewards and a behind-the-scenes look according to levels of support established before hand, as little as $2/month (less than a cup of coffee) or higher.
You can cancel or change your membership level at any time. All monies go to purchasing art supplies, creating patron rewards and paying the bills.

WHAT fun items will YOU get in the mail and online?
You will receive sketches, paintings and illustrations created either on the road or back home from photos I took on the trip ($7+). You'll get access to member-only trip reports with pictures I only share with family ($2+), view videos days before they hit social media and receive digital gifts to play with ($5+). Higher tier members ($20+) automatically get a copy of any book I publish while all others receive a discount as a thank you for their membership.
All members ($2+) get exclusive peek into the online Art program and WIP not shared anywhere else.
See specific level offerings on the right.

WHAT is the ULTIMATE GOAL?
My ultimate goal is reaching and finding "1,000 TRUE Fans" (see left column). This would enable me to divide my time between 1. publishing books and other creative projects shared with this community, and 2. mentoring kids through the online art program and live workshops.

Please click on the "Patron Rewards" tag in the left column to see what community members are receiving in the mail and I hope you'll join us for the journey. Take a look at the right column, pick your sweet spot and Welcome Aboard!
