Q: Can this box be shared with siblings?Asked by Melissa W., June 2021
Great question! Some of our boxes can be shared with siblings on our website, but not yet on our CrateJoy page (coming soon though)! Specifically, on our own website our Art School, Elementary, and Preschool boxes all have price options to add multiple people per box. I hope this helps!
I love color and art but have a fear block to create art by myself. Her easy going, simple method of teaching I can follow and they are short sessions with all the supplies as well as written instructions. There are 4 simple projects each month to keep you motivated. I got the classic box, learning different styles of painting for Sept 2021, and it has given me so much confidence to keep trying to learn art. I am looking forward to my next box. Also, you can watch the prior art lessons online if you are currently getting their boxes and use your own art supplies. I've watched so many YouTube art classes, but this has caused me to actually create the art and learn my own style. Each month is a different form of art. I think it is the simple exercises that don't take much time and the step by step exact instructions that makes it worth the price for a beginner to try different forms of art. It is truly like taking a professional art class.
