I’ve always been interested in trying subscription boxes for makeup or handmade goods, but I recently tried looking into art subscription boxes to see if there were options out there, and there are! Here are a few – this is mostly a list for myself but if there are others out there that are interested, maybe this will be helpful. If you’ve ever tried any of these please let us know in the comments!
This Lettering Box from Cratejoy looks enticing for me particularly because it looks like it would have items in it that I could experiment with for my watercolor paintings. I especially have been wanting to test a metallic Prima Watercolor set!
This awesome art box chooses to send a box to their subscribers monthly based on a medium and and tools for achieving creative work in that medium. This one looks like it’s best for beginners, but there have been some really great unboxings and tutorials on Youtube that prove even the professionals will enjoy this fun box. This box definitely includes the most products as well – you can see the list from last month’s box here.
Each month, Palletteful Packs curates an art box for their subscribers based on a theme. Like other boxes, they also like to send their subscribers new and exciting products. They offer three different types of boxes, the Petite Pack, the Palletteful Pack, and the Young Artist Pack.
Smile Create Repeat
Smile Create Repeat sends both art supplies and lessons for how to use the supplies in the box. The October box included the Versachalk chalk marker, colored pencils, a colorless blender, and other goodies not listed.
InspireME Crate looks amazing – it comes with lesson plans and art prompts for those who might struggle with a creative block or do better with instructions. There are also warm ups, drawing challenges, tutorials, and more. Besides all of these great things, the box also comes with 4-6 quality art supplies.
Art Bento Box
Art Bento Box is an Etsy subscription box that is geared towards artists who like to work with collage, texture, composition, handmade paper, ATC’s, art journals, and more. You can get the Winter 2017 subscription box here!
