Smart Art sends all sorts of different art supplies and project ideas out, so you never quite know what you will receive. The painting boxes are always my favorite. I wouldn’t say I am good at painting, but I do enjoy it.

Instructions & Painting:
I started out taking pictures of each Step on the instructions, but I got so into it that I forgot. My husband was like what are you even doing? I was like shhh, I am painting! It doesn’t exactly look like a tree, but I love it. It’s a “full-on Monet”.
