About this project

DVINci Box is an art class in a box. 

Whether you want to create at home alone or have people over to get creative, we're the perfect option. We are launching this Kickstarter to help more people get connected with their creativity so our focus is more on projects and processes that foster creativity and less about perfecting the techniques.

Our aim is to take the variables out of the equation when it comes to sitting down and creating, which is why we include:

  • Acrylic Paint
  • Brushes
  • Canvas
  • Palettes
  • Aprons
  • DIY video project/ process to follow

We put together the project, provide a video that you can follow along with as you create, and ship you the essentials so you don't get bogged down with having to run to 3 different stores to acquire all the supplies you need.  That means you can dress however you want, be wherever you want, and invite whoever you want to join you. For some people, home sounds like a more comfortable space to get in the creative groove. Many artists create their work in studios or in their homes, so why shouldn't you be able to create at home as well?

Whether you're an aspiring artist or you've never made art before there are ideas in each DVINci Box to make each person feel comfortable, inspired, and empowered to continue making time in their lives to be creative. 

The funding raised through this Kickstarter campaign will go toward acquiring all the supplies, filming and editing the DIY Videos and shipping out the first round of boxes ranging from 1 person to 6-8 people per box. The remaining funds will go toward designing a suitable website. After we have gotten feedback about the first round of DVINci boxes we will have more insight to able to design a website that will allow customers to fully customize what goes in their DVINci Box. You will also be able to subscribe to videos w/o ordering the supplies. For instance, say that you already have paintbrushes and a palette but you'd really like to see the projects we have to offer on video, and you could use paint, canvas, and an apron: you'd simply answer the questions on our website and get sent only what you need.

We are really excited to be launching this project and look forward to spreading lots of creativity!
