Smart Art Box
I have reviewed a lot of subscription boxes so it takes a lot to really "wow" me. I recently got the chance to try out the Smart Art Box and I am really, really impressed with it! This box is truly in a class of it's own! For $49.95, you get a new artistic medium sent straight to your door every month. Included in the price, are shipping and everything you need to fully manipulate the medium. You also get a pamphlet with some history on the medium and a step-by-step guide for a project.
This month the medium was acrylic paint. In the box, we got a Creative Inspirations 6 piece acrylic paint set (120ml bottles; very generous), a 3 piece Simply Simmons Oil and Acrylic brush set and wallet, a 4oz Mona Lisa Pink Soap, a Creative Mark All Edge Media Cotton Canvas (8"x10"), and a 10-well plastic palette. These are all wonderful quality supplies and would easily cost over the subscription cost if bought separately.
My boyfriend is the artist in the family so he was super excited to get a chance to play with a new medium. Usually, he works with pens, pencils, and charcoals so paint was new for him. He really enjoyed playing with the different brush strokes and colors. He followed the step-by-step guide easily and created this beautiful painting!
If you are an artist, or have an artist close to you, I think a Smart Art Box subscription would be a great gift! Playing with a new medium every month is fun, educational, and inspirational.
