You will find three leaflets on three different artists. Each contains background information on the artist, as well as clear and simple instructions for art projects.
Each box also contains a leaflet describing the month’s overall theme (for example, Shape, Portraits or Colour) and process art ideas. “LoLA recommends” lists suggested reading and visits to see the relevant artists’ work in museums, galleries or exhibitions.
A box may include art materials such as a set of 12 Reeves acrylic paints, paint brush, PVA glue, spatula and wood fork, sand, sticky back paper, canvas, water colour paper, foil …. Each month your supplies change so that over the length of your subscription you build up a great set of quality materials to use again and again and again!check out this month's box

Bringing creativity into your home
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.
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.
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.
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.
