SUNY New Paltz Graphic Design BFA Thesis Show 2020

The Art Box

Leah McKenna

Art education is an integral part of the development of a child’s mind. Not only does art education allow for creative confidence and freedom, but it provides children with a strong foundation for a lifelong appreciation of the arts. Research has proven that art education promotes stronger interpersonal skills as well as improved mental health. The Art Box is a monthly subscription box that aims to bring visually entertaining art lessons into the home. Each month, a new art topic will be explored in an interactive book, and each child will be provided with a sketchbook filled with activities, as well as flashcards that explore new key terms. By creating an affordable subscription box that promotes art education and history in an accessible and exciting package, the positive impact of art education can become more accessible to all.
