Working on this kit with my daughter was such a beautiful, simple pleasure, the best kind of all. She loved it, I loved it, and we both learned something while we spent valuable time together.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) October 6, 2010
Bridget Daly and Shannon Ninburg of Eye Can Art are proud to announce that they are re-releasing their four classic art kits with a new look that features whimsical, colorful collage animals designed by artist Sara Barnes. The kits are still packaged in recyclable, reusable cans and still contain high quality art materials that can be used multiple times. The new labels provide pictures of all the supplies included, as well as examples of finished artworks made from the kit .
The company is also releasing two new kits to launch its budget-friendly ‘Art Class’ series.
The Amate Cut Paper Kit provides projects that teach about symmetry and amate art. The Pastel Stencil Kit lets the child create their own stencil pictures with chalk pastels. Like Eye Can Art's other kits, these come with everything needed, right down to scissors and glue. Both of these kits have a retail price point of $19.
Eye Can Art co-owner, Bridget Daly says, “Our kits encourage creative play for kids and adults. We designed the label to show art made by both older and younger people, while providing more information for the customer.”
Eye Can Art is a small business based out of Seattle. Owners Bridget and Shannon believe that both kids and adults deserve creative activities at home that spark enthusiasm for art. Respecting these ideals, Eye Can Art Kits include clear instructions that teach real art concepts such as line, shape and value. The kits are safe, easy to use, and provide a meaningful and imaginative project that can be enjoyed with friends and family members, or individually.
