The boxes have been developed by LoLA (Lots of Lovely Art). Through its workshops, products and social media, LoLA provides art projects inspired by real artists, and it supports children in experimenting with a wide range of materials.

The founders, Alara and Selina, want to reach as many children as possible with their belief that process-based artist-inspired experiences are an important way to develop problem-solving skills, analytical thinking and self-confidence.

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, 6 or 12 month subscription and receive fun and engaging art projects delivered every month 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 that month.

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 three artist-inspired activities and four creative process ideas.

Quality Materials

Art projects are aimed at girls and boys age 4-12, with tips on how to adapt each project for under 4s. Lots of quality art materials are included, a generous amount for one child with left overs to build up your art supplies at home.

Lets get creative!

“These boxes encourage creative art rather than instructional craft. We all look forward to them each month.”

Chris Adams, papa of three (5, 8 and 10 years), London, UK

“The kids absolutely loved it. Whether they were toddlers or teenagers, they came away with their own most incredible artwork.”

Becca, mama of two (11 and 12 years), Hampshire, UK

Why LoLA boxes?

Bringing creativity into your home

Inspiration

Each box has its own art-based theme (for example, “Portraits”, “Colour” or “Texture”) relevant to the calendar of exhibitions in galleries and museums. It introduces children to fantastic artists with open-ended art projects. Brilliant works by the artists, contemporary exhibitions and related reading all inspire children to make their own masterpieces.

Education

From the artists and the different ways they work, children learn about art history and art techniques. The boxes include clear, simple instructions to help start them 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 or printmaking), it emphasises that there is no “wrong” way for these skills to be learnt.
