Creative Kids Kit – Virtual Summer “Camp”

For those of you who would prefer to be creative at home this summer, we have you covered! Each Creative Kids Kit will include 9 artist lessons, 25 activities with written instruction and supplies.

We’ll include projects inspired by Pablo Picasso, Van Gogh, Matisse, Monet, Georgia O’Keeffe, Sonia Delaunay, Jackson Pollock, Mary Cassatt, and Wassily Kandinsky.

Kit is appropriate for kids 5-13; younger children will likely need supervision so you can help read the instructions for them and provide guidance. You need to have a couple things on hand at home – scissors, magazines/junk mail with pictures, an old book or magazine you can cut a page of words from, a photo of your kiddo (sized to 8.5×11 and printed out), and a cup and water for cleaning paintbrushes!

Materials provided will include watercolor and acrylic paints, paintbrushes, tagboard, paper, cardstock, markers, black permanent marker, oil pastels, glue, canvas, watercolor paper, tissue paper, craft sticks, yarn, twine, rocks, tape, ruler, sketch paper, and other items to help paint, craft and create!

Pick-up at our studio location, 605 W. Riordan Road. Once you place your order, we’ll call to arrange a pick-up time with you.
