We are the ONLY subscription art box prioritizing self-expression and independent thinking in the creative process.
Rather than teach to a singular outcome, we will show kids how to use the supplies and then encourage them to create on the terms of their own imagination.
No complicated instruction booklets. No boring turkey hands. Only the highest quality supplies paired with dynamic video lessons for a fully curated art experience!
How It Works
Exploring Colors is a dynamic art experience that pairs subscription art boxes with fun weekly art lessons for children K-5. We believe fostering creativity at an early age is one of the best investments you can make in your child’s life.
Once a month you will receive a curated selection of high-quality art supplies. Each box contains enough materials for one project a week plus additional supplies for whenever you feel inspired.
Each week we will upload an art lesson to YouTube to be paired with the supplies in your box. These lessons will allow your child to explore independently, strengthen their creative muscle and think outside of the box!
How It Works

Inspire Creativity. Our art projects are designed to inspire your kids to become creative problem solvers. No complicated instruction booklets. No boring turkey hands. Instead, we will show your kids how to use the supplies and then encourage them to create on the terms of their own imagination.

What Makes Us Different
Exploring Colors was founded on the belief that exposing children to creativity at an early age has tremendous benefits.
Traditional schooling usually teaches to a singular answer that limits self-expression and creative thinking. We feel strongly there is no one right way to do an art project.
We will show kids how to use different materials and then encourage them to use their imagination to come up with their own solutions. We hope to provide children with a safe space to take risks and think out of the box, as we know this is a lifelong skill.
After graduating from Cornell University with a BFA, Marnie has taught art to children for almost 20 years. She recently received her MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Marnie sits on various committees at the MoMA, Whitney, ICP and Johnson Museums in New York. She is very excited to combine her love of art with children to bring Exploring Colors to life with her son, Max!
Max recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a BBA in Finance. As a result of growing up in a creative household, Max regards creativity as an important asset to problem solving in unusual ways. In fact, he has utilized many of these lessons in creativity while helping to build Exploring Colors. Max hopes to pass this on and is excited to bring creativity to children everywhere!
Each box contains a diverse assortment of high quality, colorful art materials to expose your child to a variety of mediums. While one box may include watercolor paper, pencils and paints to explore portraiture and landscapes, the next may utilize modeling clay to explore color theory in a tactile way. Let us help you build your own art library!
No! We will provide everything you need to participate in the lessons plus extra supplies to play with at a later date!
Each box contains the necessary materials for the four art lessons each month. Each week we will upload a video lesson to YouTube using specific supplies in the box. Follow along to learn new techniques and strategies while letting your imagination run wild!
Boxes ship out on the first of the month and should arrive within 2-3 business days! We will email you a tracking number as soon as your box ships. We will also upload the first video lesson on the 7th of the month and then post a new video each week afterwards. Get ready for a month’s worth of creativity!
We have designed the box for one child. Since each box will be used for four lessons, we suggest purchasing an additional box for each child to make sure that they both have an optimal experience. You can never have enough art materials!
Our Happiness Guarantee is as simple as it sounds. If you are not completely happy with the experience of your first box, we will offer a full refund no questions asked. Please note that this offer does only apply only to the first box that you order.
Rather than teaching to a singular outcome, we will show kids how to use the supplies and then encourage them to create on the terms of their own imagination. Unlike complicated and annoying text instructions, our video lessons serve as the perfect vehicle to introduce to children how to use the materials and give prompts to inspire them to take risks and create their own way. In doing so, we will highlight there’s no one right outcome but rather are many different ways to express yourself and your creativity.
