Lots of Lovely Art

Each box contains three artist-inspired projects, four process-art ideas and a selection of quality materials to enable children to be independently creative at home.

The Tactile Texture
Box

£27

We will look at how Van Gogh simulates the sensation of texture in his famous "Starry Night" painting; at how Eric Carle uses painted collage papers to create texture in his illustrations; and at Cy Twombly's layering of thick paint to create abstract art.

Little Ones
Tactile Texture

£27

Short activities for younger children, our Little One's box textural art projects are inspired by Van Gogh's famous "Starry Night" painting,  Eric Carle's collage papers and Cy Twombly's layering of thick paint and materials.

The Sculpture Surprise Box

£27

Pure sculptors (eg, Henry Moore) chip away with a hammer and chisel. When moulding clay, models can be cast in materials like bronze (eg, Alberto Giacometti ). Other techniques include assembling a variety of materials (eg, Alexander Calder).

The Abstract Action Box

£27

  • SOLD OUT

Canvases like Jackson Pollock’s express the actions of the painter. Mark Rothko’s form of Abstract Art was Colour Field Painting and we will look at how this can express emotion, alongside Joan Miro’s pictorial language which creates dream-like masterpieces.

The Shape Shifters Box

£27

  • SOLD OUT

In this box we look at Henri Matisse and his beautiful freeform paper-cuts, at Sonia Delaunay and her fascinating circles, and finally at Anni Albers and her mesmerising woven art pieces, recently on exhibition at the Tate Modern in London.

Portrait Party Box
The Portrait Party Box

£27

  • SOLD OUT

Here we take inspiration from some of the masters of portrait painting: Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso and Amedeo Modigliani. Each of these artists shows us different styles and different materials that can be used to create a face.

Why Lots of Lovely Art boxes?

Each month, the artists in the LoLA box are linked to books, films, exhibitions or a recommended art trip that can be taken as a family. Seeing the artists’ work in print or in institutions around the world reinforces the projects that the children are doing that month.

Quality

We choose and send out the very best art materials.
At the same time we introduce new and
exciting art mediums and supplies for children
to experiment with.

Plentiful

There are more than enough materials in each box for
an artist! Some supplies may even
be used again and again, or shared – we want children
to have time to really learn how
to use new materials.

Convenient

Everything that the children need
(supplies, instructions) is personally addressed
and delivered through the letterbox!
No need to waste time scouring
for that elusive water-based ink!
