Q: I am considering this box for my 11-year old granddaughter. She is a very accomplished sketcher. Should I get the regular Gogh box or the one for kids?Asked by Lori B., October 2020
Hi Lori! The age of 11 is within the range that we consider to be in that transition point between our kids kits and standard kits. What you might consider is getting the standard subscription. The kids kits use the same canvas and basic colors that are shipped with the standard kits, so if she decides one of the projects in the standard kit is intimidating she can opt to paint a kids painting instead. The difference between what is included is the standard kits sometimes include additional colors, or projects on different painting surfaces like birch panels. The standard kits also include printed instructions which kids kits do not.
I hope that helps!
The artists do a great job at walking you through each painting. I love how different their styles are from one another. It reminds me that we all create art differently and not to be too hard on myself.
Very well put together art box with great tutorial videos on YouTube to accompany the box.
I’m very happy with this subscription!
