Past Boxes from Classy Artist Box
Cozy up indoors this October with our realistic drawing box! We're using a set of Wolff's Graphite Pencils and learning and practicing tips and techniques that will direct you toward drawing like a pro, whether you follow our 4 tutorials or draw on your own!
This March is all about clay! We will be creating two air dry clay projects (weeks one and weeks two). Then, we will paint them for our final two weeks of the month! For video tutorials you'll need to email us once you get your box and we'll set you up with a login to view the exclusive video lessons!
This month we will explore the amazingly simple art media called charcoal! It's a humble art supply, but can do amazing wonders when you learn to use it in the right ways to achieve your artistic goal. This month we'll go through the basics of this media.
In our May boxes for those ages 12+ we include three different sizes of fine-tip pens, 4 paper, a bonus notebook, a ruler/protractor, assignment checklist, reference photos, instructions and access to the video lessons (please reach out for an account).
Our ‘Classic’ box (and ASB — combined for the summer) will look at creating negative space and inverted highlights with Museum Series Scratch Board from Ampersand. For the fourth project we will switch gears and talk about other ways to create a folksy, monochromatic artwork using some lovely blue watercolor. Share your successes with us at #ClassyArtistBox What’s the difference between the Classic & Art School boxes? The classic is for anyone ages 12+ who wants to make
Our July box is going to be epic if you want to learn about drawing realistic faces!
This month we will be doing some old school ink drawing and calligraphy! This one is the same as the ASB until September when the school year begins again.
The September box theme is all about butterflies and living out our childhood bug collecting dreams, but without the bugs. We will create four projects, but you'll have the option to combine some of them onto a wooden canvas. This box includes: a wood canvas, sewing scissors, paper for the projects, and dual sided markers.
This box was all about printmaking! To explore this art media we will explore foam printmaking on paper, making a garland, and printing on a tea towel!
This month we will explore ways to create with a watercolor-like art media, a paint called Cretacolor gouache. We will explore a variety of techniques used to create unique, realistic seasonal paintings. The topics are: a nutcracker, fireplace, a carved carrousel reindeer, and a winter scene snow globe.
This box is all about creating both functional and fine art with polymer clay.
In February we'll be making some spring-y themed needle felting projects: a landscape, pop art themed project, a portrait, and a bird.
Our March Classic Artist Box will feature an art medium called Chinese watercolors. We will take a renewed look at the traditional painting techniques as we make practice color palettes and marks before we begin each painting. We will be using a bamboo brush and silk paper to practice a variety of designs; the compositions include botanical, floral, pattern, and an animal (an alpaca). We think the lessons in this box will prepare you to paint anything you want!
