“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”). 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.
