Introducing Let's Make Art Matter

Introducing Let's Make Art Matter
Hello friends,
We want to start off by saying we think you are amazing, brave, and wonderful people who are still chasing down their creativity and willing to try something new. And we love you for that.
We have all learned as we go through our days that life is hard, and we don’t necessarily mean just one person, we mean everyone’s. It may be one particular family that had a very rough year—from cancer to suicide to miscarriages to divorce. Every time something horrible happens we want to say something, anything, that could comfort them, but who even knows what to say in those situations? So instead of saying, we create. Just so they know we are thinking about them, just so they know they are loved. It is through these experiences that we realized that art can be so much more than fun illustrations. Art can help bring people together, spread love, and sometimes heal. We want everybody to know that.
So every month in our subscription box we include a little postcard. A postcard for someone who needs a little extra love or thought. But we need your help. While we would love to send these postcards to people we personally know, we want this to reach beyond my grasp, and that is where you come in. As you go about your day, think of someone who might need this. It can be anybody, a sweet neighbor that you appreciate, someone who is lonely, or down, or sad. Send us their information and we can see if we can brighten their day, even just for a little bit. Because we are all in this together.

  • Back in June I had a serious surgery and could only lie in bed or sit in my recliner. So I found Let’s Make Art on Facebook and decided to try it. Oh and I can’t draw a straight line. But thanks to Sarah and her way of explaining things I cannot believe how good my paintings are. Thank you very much for helping me through my recovery and I am now receiving my monthly boxes and can’t wait to get them. Thank you

  • I just recently started painting using the kits as a way to cope with a new diagnosis of MS. Right now there isn’t much physically I can do without becoming so exhausted that it seems breathing is a chore, and it has been really hard for me both mentally and physically. As a 29 year old I want to be active all the time, but since I can’t I paint. I’m not very good, but it gives me peace of mind. Thank y’all for all that you do!!!

  • Painting has been a great way to forget about how constricted my life has become due to COVID 19. I took up watercolor painting thinking I would do landscapes—I hate doing them, but love doing still life and animals. Your tutorials that focus on wet on wet take me out of my comfort level and I’ve painted a number of them twice to practice the technique. I’m so glad I found your tutorials!

  • Hello!
    I spend time with my watercolors every day. It has been very healing and makes me feel alive. I recently spent a few weeks as an inpatient in a mental health unit for severe depression. One thing we talked about daily was art therapy. When I came across your art boxes I was thrilled. I just wan TV to say “Thank you!” for helping bring art into my life! I am so grateful!
