In a departure from the typical mass market art kit, Eye Can Art kits encourage experimentation and expression.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 09, 2012
Eye Can Art announces the release of two new art kits, the Sketch Foam Printmaking Kit and the Fabric Sun Photo Kit.
Eye Can Art kits offer opportunities for kids to create works of art without templates or pre-made stencils so that the results are personal and unique. Each of the 8 Eye Can Art kit styles teach an authentic art technique with clear, illustrated instructions and high-quality supplies, enough to do the project multiple times.
The new Sketch Foam Printmaking Kit presents an easy-to-learn lesson on hand-colored printmaking using lines. This kit has already won an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award and is in the running for a Platinum Award.
The Fabric Sun Photo Kit combines the light of the sun with the imagination of a child to create terrific photo prints on fabric. Christina Refford of CoolMomPicks.com says, “In a departure from the typical mass market art kit, Eye Can Art kits encourage experimentation and expression. What makes this (Fabric Sun Photo) kit so special is that, like so many of Eye Can Art's kits, instead of telling kids what to make, it tells kids how to make their art piece, and then lets them have at it.”
Like the six other kits in their award-winning line, these kits are packaged in attractive, reusable paper cans that feature whimsical and colorful collage animals designed by artist, Sara Barnes.
Eye Can Art is a small business based out of Seattle. Co-owners Bridget Daly and Shannon Ninburg, both artists and educators, believe that kids and adults deserve a creative outlet at home that sparks enthusiasm for art. They have created a line of art kits that are safe, easy to use, and provide a meaningful and imaginative project that can be shared with friends and family or done solo.
With the release of the Sketch Foam Printmaking Kit and the Fabric Sun Photo Kit, the Eye Can Art line consists of eight kits, most of which have won prestigious toy awards. The kits are appropriate for ages 5 to 95. They include the Printmaking Kit ($28), the Wax Drawing Kit ($28), the Sumi-e Ink Painting Kit ($28), the Book in a Box Kit ($28), the Amate Cut Paper Kit ($24), the Pastel Stencil Kit ($24),and now the Sketch Foam Printmaking Kit ($28) and the Fabric Sun Photo Kit ($30).
