Kids Art Box provides art subscription boxes for children between 6 and 12 years old. They are very passionate about creating educational and artistic experiences for children to share with their loved ones. Their goal is to help introduce children to a diverse array of impactful artists and different art techniques starting from a very young age. This helps instill in children their own sense of independent creativity. In Spring 2022, in collaboration with the Estate, 'My Artist Box: Pacita Abad' was launched.
Pacita Abad was a bold Asian-American artist, activist, and world traveler. She embraced color, patterns, and texture while creating remarkable pieces that encouraged people to look at social issues in a whole new way.
With this art kit, children will get the opportunity to discover her stunning works and create four abstract pieces. They'll use vibrant paints and oil pastels to design shapes and patterns. They'll also gain inspiration from Pacita Abad's unique “trapunto” style, adorning their pieces with gems, sequins, reflective paper, and other mixed-media elements. The final project is a 3D rendering of an underwater seascape that will make the water come alive with fish and plants!
