How it works

Lots of Lovely Art boxes provide a magical art box full of great supplies for children of all ages, bringing a regular experience of art and artists into their lives through the letterbox.

Buy or subscribe

If you fancy just trying it out, buy a single box for a one-off creative experience. Or sign up for a 3 month, 12 month or every 2 months subscription and receive fun and engaging art projects delivered to your door.

Curated Creativity

Each box celebrates an overall art theme with three relevant artists to inspire and enhance creativity! We include LoLA recommendations – from books and videos, to the relevant artists in an exhibition, museum or gallery.

Art Projects

Budding Picassos open their beautiful boxes to find exciting art projects, supplies and inspiration to keep their artistic juices flowing for a month! Each box contains artist-inspired activities and creative process ideas.

Lots of quality art materials are included, a generous amount for one child with leftovers to build up your art supplies at home. LoLA for Little Ones contains art projects for ages 3+ and LoLA boxes for ages 6+.

Why LoLA boxes?

Bringing creativity into your home

Inspiration

Each box has its own art-based theme (for example, “Portraits”, “Colour” or “Texture”). Where possible these are linked to exhibitions in galleries and museums. They introduce children to fantastic artists with open-ended art projects.

Education

Children learn about art history and art techniques through artists and the different ways they work. The boxes include clear, simple instructions to help start children off and to give them the confidence to be independently creative.

Imagination

The projects encourage children to experiment and to explore the use of new art materials… and to have fun! As well as the three main art projects, each box contains a selection of theme-related, process-based art ideas to further stimulate their imagination.

Process

Children embrace a process-oriented approach to the arts, where they create for the sake of creating… Even though each LoLA box explores real art techniques (such as still-life), it emphasises that there is no “wrong” way for these skills to be learnt.
