IMG_20160829_010045Smile Create Repeat is a monthly subscription box that not only includes artist quality art supplies but also gives you instructions on how to use them.

Smile Create Repeat arrived in a thin but wide medium sized box with their logo stickered on the side.

Non-toxic opaque paint marker that doesn’t need to be shaken and won’t make a mess.

This carbon pencil has the “smoothness of graphite with the deep rich blacks of charcoal”.

Every month Smile Art Create includes a different pencil. If you subscribed to each box you’ll have a high quality set ranging from 6B (very soft) to 6H (very hard).





Two postcards featuring artwork from subscribers who used previous month’s supplies to create the art.





IMG_20160829_010924BONUS Pencil & Sticker

As a nice bonus and welcome to Smile Art Create, a pencil and sticker with their logo were included with the box.






IMG_20160829_010323My first Smile Create Repeat included a nice variety of high quality art supplies. I especially like the carbon sketch pencil but the opaque paint marker is a really neat inclusion. It’s pretty refreshing to see a quality subscription box that doesn’t cost $40+. $20 shipped is a fantastic value for well-curated art supply choices.

Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a seasoned artist, the monthly surprise from Smile Create Repeat should be right for you.
