Smart Art provides artists with diverse, high-quality materials that inspire and nourish creativity. Each month subscribers receive a new box featuring a different artist that highlights their time-period, 8-11 trial/full sized art supplies, a suggested project, and a detailed pamphlet introducing a new art medium.
Disclosure: This complimentary box was sent for review purposes. As always, all opinions are my own, and no compensation was received.
Smart Art ships via USPS and ships on or around the 1st of the month. If you sign up on or before the 28th of the month, you will get the box that will be released on the 1st of the following month. All orders processed after the 28th will ship the month after the following month. For example, a purchase made on or before February 28th will be shipped March 1st. A purchase made on March 1st will be shipped April 1st.
I never know what to expect from Smart Art or what project will be included! That’s what makes it fun though.
The March 2017 Smart Art explored Pablo Picasso’s Blue Period. The instruction booklet gives a bit of background on the project and also Project Pointers – these are key!
Smart Art always includes clear step-by-step instructions. You can choose to follow along exactly or branch out on your own if you are comfortable.
I ended up just playing around with the materials and didn’t actually finish a project. These were all new materials to me and I for sure needed practice with them. I like that Smart Art lets you explore so many different mediums and I am always impressed with the high quality of the materials they send!
