Created: Bridging the Gap Between Your Art and Your Creator

$31,151

690

The first five words of the Bible are "In the Beginning, God Created". IT'S THE FIRST THING. Every time we dip our brush in the paint, or set our fingers to the keys, or hit "record", we mirror in some tiny way that original action. 

Bottom line: We're artists because God is. 

In this book, some of the foremost Catholic creatives share their own five words that inspire their work. These include painters, filmmakers, actors, pastors, authors, professors, and architects. Oh my. 

And each page is illuminated in BEAUTIFUL artwork by a variety of talented artists. 

 

Special pricing is available if you want to get Created as a gift for your closest 3, 5, 10, or 20 friends! If you have more friends than that, you should send some our way. But seriously, Created makes a great gift for your staff, seminar, or ministry. 

 

 

 

Are you a creator? Do you have a loved one who is? Our Creator Packages are tailored to people who want to dive deeper. 

 

Check out our two NEW reward tiers! 

Boost your workspace (or rule the Christmas gift game) with work by our partner Fawnly! Get a $25 online store credit for anything in the Fawnly online store, featuring hand lettering and watercolor on prints, notebooks, mugs, and more! 

 Give the gift of Created to a classroom near you, be it your local high school art class, religious ed program, or parish group. Also receive two free Created books for yourself! 

 

Art is not just about artists. It's about the people who enable artists to make things that reflect truth, beauty, and goodness. By being a Created patron, you can support faithful artistry. There are three tiers of patrons, with benefits ranging from recognition in the book to dedicating the Created endeavor to the legacy of a loved one.

STRETCH GOALS:

First of all, an enormous thank you to each and every one of you who has supported us in this crazy, exciting project! You funded us 100% within the first 24 hours of launching. There aren’t words to express our gratitude and appreciation of your swift willingness to back the Created book.

As you can see, the campaign is still going strong. We've blown through our goal. Now it’s just of matter of how many hands we can get this book into.

Sooooo, without further ado, we’re introducing our new stretch goals for this campaign.

STRETCH GOAL #1 - $25,000 - 10 Additional Artists featured in Created

The world needs to hear the first 5 words of our 50 contributors (including Bishop Robert Barron, Peter Kreeft, Christopher West, Erica Tighe, Daniela Madriz, and many others). And when it comes to beauty (and marshmallows), we're inclined to think that more is indeed better. 

For our first stretch goal, we want to bring you the wisdom of 10 more fantastic creatives, as well as 10 more beautifully designed images and thoughtful expansions of their first 5 words.

STRETCH GOAL # 2 - $55,000 - Created Book Curriculum for small groups

Created is meant to be the start of a conversation. Between artists and their Creator, but also between each one of us. 

For our second stretch goal, we want to provide you with the next step in that conversation. In 2018, we will deliver to our backers a digital copy of our brand new curriculum that will bring creatives together and help them work through the insights and challenges introduced in Created.

Again, thanks to all of our backers who are helping us to deliver this amazing project to the world! 

Risks and challenges

We are striving to put the book in our backers' hands as early as possible, in time for the Christmas season. There is always a chance that delays may occur, but we feel confident in the relationships we have built for the American printer we have been working with.
