Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get my child into art?

Introducing your child to the world of art is an enriching and rewarding experience. Here are some simple and effective ways to get started.

  1. Start by leading by example. Let them see you draw or paint, and encourage them to join in with their own kid-friendly art sets.
  2. Create a designated art space with access to a range of supplies and materials, including paints, paint brushes, clay, crayons, and colouring sets.
  3. Encourage exploration and inspiration by taking them to museums, art galleries, or by going on nature walks to spark inspiration.
  4. Make art a regular part of your day. Set aside time to create different projects with your child and showcase their art around the house to celebrate their accomplishments.


Are your art supplies safe for kids to use?

Absolutely! We only source the safest, kid-friendly art supplies for children. Whether you’re shopping for finger paints or arts and crafts sets, parents and caregivers can feel confident knowing they’re ordering art supplies designed specifically for their young artists.

What is the best kind of paint for kids?

Watercolour paints are considered one of the best types of paint for kids. Since they’re diluted with water, young artists can create different effects and blend colours without feeling intimidated or overwhelmed. Watercolours can be added to various surfaces, such as paper, canvas, and fabric, giving your child more options to create unique artwork. Their quick drying time allows kids to see their finished product right away and gives them the opportunity to build on their work.
