Art and creative activities are especially important during times of stress or change - allowing children to lose themselves in their endeavours and express their emotions, without needing to seek the words. We have discovered a wonderful small UK business called Lots of Lovely Art, who offer such respite and inspiration through a magical, educational art box for children of all ages delivered directly though your letterbox. The LoLA box is filled with high-quality materials, beautifully constructed information sheets on artists, and clear instructions for fun art projects. A new theme is released each month, introducing three artists to children through creative projects.
The May box is a real treat. Entitled ‘Earth Matters’, it has been inspired by nature, and the work of three incredible artists: Olafur Eliasson, Andy Goldsworthy and Georgia O’Keeffe. We couldn’t recommend it highly enough and we’re delighted to be able to offer our subscribers 10% off using the code DENKIT on checkout at www.lotsoflovelyart.org
Keep an eye on our ’stories’ as we’ll be trying out the techniques and ideas contained in this box over the next few weeks!
