Our kits usually ship out in 2-3 business days. We hand draw each and every one, to order. This gives us the option to offer many designs, and also provides the unique opportunity for quality control. This also means it takes a little time to get your order ready for you.

Our kits do not come with instructions. One of our goals as a business is to foster imagination and open-ended activities for kids. This means we want children to feel the freedom and joy of investigating their own creativity while using our art materials. For our canvas art kits, we do provide a picture of a sample painting. If your child wants to recreate it in the same way we did, they can view the painting in our gallery and interpret how they would like to paint.
