Beautiful Art Kits By Addicted To Art In Conjunction With Artist Ingrid Wallach

No, Im not talking about the television box

The Perfect Arts & Crafts In A Box - Fluid Art , Jewellery Art, Polymer Clay, Fairy Door , Acrylic Painting, Fabric Painting, 3DArt and Candle Decoupage Kits.

Art kits for you and your kids to get addicted to art and cut down on that screen time. I dont know about you but we seem to be on our phones way too much, well I think getting creative and making things is the solution.

A few weeks ago, I received a call from Ingrid about her kits, we hit it off immediately and I knew they just belonged on my site. As an artist myself I have been putting together different kits which customers are loving but what I liked about hers was that it was all in one box, had instructions and videos and really did give you a chance to see if that craft or arty technique was something you wanted to do without having to outlay tons of money for art materials you might not use. The kits are also packaged perfectly for a DIY art party or team building event for kids and adults. They are also perfect gifts for birthdays or christmas. I am delighted to partner up with Ingrid to bring you these proudly South African Art Kits for you to have fun with and get your creative juices flowing. I am also looking forward to collaborating on a new kit with Ingrid involving dot art. No prior art experience is needed for these kits, so they really are for everyone.

What Ingrid had to say about the kits.

I have been an artist my whole life, drawing from when I could pick up a pencil. I've always wanted to share my love of art, colours, shapes and expression, so I taught at primary school level and had an art shop which had a studio where I taught adults and children the love of art and craft.

So many people are intimidated by the fact that "they can't draw a straight line", but the beauty of Fluid Acrylic art is that straight lines are banned! Anyone can do it! It's a case of selecting the colours that move you and a technique you, like the look of, and then just play! There are no mistakes. If you don't like the look of what you did, simply scrape it off and start over!

The fluid art concept is designed to make yourself feel good. It's also fantastic therapy. It takes you out of your stressful day and gets you into "The Moment" and you feel like you have meditated and just HAD FUN!

The kits are also made to have fun and to enjoy yourself. The materials used are of a great quality, so that you can feel good about what you make.

There are just enough items in the kits to give you the exposure to a new art/craft form without having to purchase huge amounts before you know if you will enjoy it. If you find that you love it after you have done a kit, you can then go and buy bigger quantities of what was in the kit. It's experimental without a massive financial commitment!

The teaching I mentioned comes in the form of online tutorials which are available for the kits, as well as techniques of fluid art.

More Art Less Screen Time!

I'm not sure if you have noticed but kids and adults are becoming more and more addicted to their screens and I am not excluding myself. Being a business owner and working from home constantly trying to promote and expand my business is a full time job and I am doing it mostly from my laptop and phone. I'm constantly creating little videos and images for social media etc but then I realized that I have to put it down especially when the kids get home because my 3 year old keeps asking to look at my pictures and trying to take the phone and my 7 year old keeps asking to watch T.V. What is the solution here??? Well, I decided to set a good example and so I put my phone away and started to paint. Guess what happened next? Yip, they came asking me if they could paint and make things too. What a win! These kits are perfect to get you off your phone making something and the feeling you get while doing art is so calming and peaceful and what a great way to spend quality time with your children. There is a real sense of accomplishment after finishing a project which is beyond what you get from being on your phone or watching T.V for hours.

Most of the kits are on my site and we are working tirelessly to get them all up for the holiday season, I will update this blog post as they come online but even if they are not all on the site you can still buy them as they are available to purchase. In the mean time I will just list everything here for now and you can just pop me an email if you would like one of the kits now.
