Product Details

For kids and teens who love art and nature!

Our Art Boxes feature imaginative projects, quality materials + video lessons that build fine art skills in kids and teens. Designed with care by the artist/educators at Camp Wildcraft, each box encourages young artists to explore and find inspiration in the natural world. There are a total of 6 monthly boxes. See Box Showcase for details!
  • With each new box, kids add more supplies and techniques to their "home-base art studio," and creatively grow as young artists.
  • Homeschool families love our Art Boxes--build your home art program with our immersive, high level content, materials and video lessons.
  • Designed for ages 6 through early teens, with different options and levels of instruction. (Younger children may need some guidance.)
  • These are not "cookie-cutter" crafts, but thoughtfully designed projects which encourage creativity and self expression.
  • Our Family "Add-On Art Pack" provides additional materials for a sibling or adult to complete the project as well! It is shipped in the same box; some materials are shared.

Q: Do the video lessons teach art skills? Asked by Shari D., January 2022

Camp Wildcraft Art Box answered...January 2022

Yes! The short video lessons (along with the printed instruction sheets) both explain the steps of the project, and teach a variety of drawing, painting, sculpting and mixed-media art techniques appropriate to each project. Each month young artists develop new art skills, learn about new artists and techniques, and build their in-home art studio with a growing collection of art supplies and techniques they can keep exploring and using.

Really fantastic art box — the quality of the finished pieces are heads above other similar boxes. Really fantastic and even my 7 year-old was able to work totally on her own.

Your Art Boxes have the most amazing quality art projects. They are so beautifully made. Opening them each month is such a gift. My daughter collects nature treasures and through these art boxes she's has had a way to use them to make art. I am a big fan!

These projects are great for showing my 11 year old daughter the process of making art. My daughter has worked on every project. Sometimes she takes them outside to be inspired by the nature around us as she works. Every box has been extremely thoughtful, fun and well designed. The step by step instructions and videos provide guidance and there so so much room for kids to grow both their skills and creativity.

My daughter’s very focused when she enjoys something, and she worked on this project for three hours today! She loves the sketchbook and has been drawing in it daily. My husband and I are usually on the computer all day so it was great to do this with the kids!

We love the art boxes! They are so beautiful and wonderfully put together. It's been amazing. Seriously, it has kept my 6 year old daughter's interest all day. And she's not done.

​I've become a new homeschool mom this year and needed to incorporate more art lessons into my kids' weekly schedule. I started searching for monthly project boxes to inspire them. I showed them probably a dozen to choose from and yours was the clear winner! The videos are perfect, they kept rewinding them to learn more! W were so impressed how easy it was to jump into these creative projects. They are packaged beautifully and provide both art lessons and a creative process that my kids really responded to.

Inside Out: Still Life & Landscape Painting-- Art Box #6

Inside Out: Still Life & Landscape Painting-- Art Box #6

In this vibrant painting project you will arrange a "still life" composition in front of a window. A still life is a painting of one or more objects that don't move. They are still! You will be painting the objects you arrange--as well as what you see outside the window. If you don't have a window you can easily use, you can imagine one to paint! Included are stretched canvas, small wooden easel to hold + display the canvas, paints, oil pastels, brushes and paint.
