IMG_20160106_120821Smart Art is a subscription box that delivers monthly high quality art supplies with a suggested project that can be completed using what’s included. Each month there’s tips, instructions and thorough information on the included items to guide you in your use. Every month’s box is a different medium with previous boxes including charcoals, clays, oil or acrylic paints or even caligraphy.

 

Smart Art arrived in a thin but wide purple box with their logo on the lid.

This high quality 12-pencil set includes a variety of colors that are great for mixing and blending. The metal tin is a nice container for keeping them organized and the tips from being broken.

This 72lb paper artist book is good for just about any medium like pencils, watercolors, pens, or crayons. The fabric strap to tie the book closed is a really nice touch.

This blending pencil works nicely with the included color pencils for burnishing and making interesting color blends.

What better way to use the included pencils than a pencil sharpener? The long point sharpener first sharpens the wood, then sharpens the lead for a nicely sharp point.

IMG_20160106_121417My first Smart Art Box was pretty impressive with high quality colored pencils, the sketch book, the sharpener and even including a blending pencil. With everything included you can start creating or follow their included guide for this month’s suggested project.
