This month Creative 360 has launched two new ArtSpark Boxes – a Crazy for Collage Project Kit and a Gratitude Inspiration Box based on Found Items Assemblage.
The new Project Collage Kit contains everything you need to create two collaged tags, a collaged greeting card and a collaged wall picture. The boxes are themed by subject and color – for instance you can choose a Bird themed box in blues and greens or a Space themed box in multiple colors. Julie Welsh, a well know collage and mail-art artist at Creative 360, was a key designer of this project box. The box includes a tip sheet from Julie and links to helpful videos as well.
The November Inspiration Box contains a collection of ‘found items’ that can be used to create a project from your own imagination. “The idea was to think about the things we use and see every day in a new way – to be grateful for the small things that surround us, ” explained Executive Director Laura Vosejpka. Like the first Founder’s Inspiration Box, if you need ideas, there are three envelopes in the box with suggested projects for the items.
All ArtSpark Boxes are $20 and 100% of the proceeds go directly to supporting Creative 360’s programming. You can purchase a box at the center and the staff is also able to ship the boxes in the US for a small postage fee.
