ARTSHINE IN A BOX: a monthly art subscription for kids!

CA$ 21,460

Hello, I'm Paul!  I founded Artshine and Arts4All in 2015.  My career before Artshine, as a social worker with at-risk youth, inspired me to want to provide individuals with a healthy outlet to express their emotions, build self-confidence, and cope with the adversities that life may throw their way.  My experience in youth engagement, social work and arts education motivated me to create this innovative self-funding social-enterprise model. 

Artshine’s original program, taught by instructors who are artists themselves, offers educational mobile art classes that visit schools throughout Ontario to help students build their arts knowledge, skills and confidence. By expanding our offering with the launch of this new monthly subscription service, 'Artshine in a Box', kids can experience our enriching art lessons in the comfort of their own home, throughout the year, all across Canada.

Our amazing and creative Artshine Team!

Artshine is a Canadian mobile art social enterprise.  What this means is that the profits from Artshine’s paid programs are put back into the community through our non-profit, Arts4All, in the form of scholarships, subsidized and free art programs for people living with disabilities, seniors’ communities, and at-risk youth. Together, Artshine and Arts4All are devoted to creating a community where participation in the arts is available to people of all levels of income, education, ability or life circumstances.  

With the roll-out of our new subscription service, families will receive an art kit each month that explores a different theme and art medium and includes a video tutorial in English and French.  Subscribers will receive creative and engaging lessons featuring drawing, pastels, painting, 3D pens, and more.  

Limited quantities of our early-bird pricing plus you get FREE SHIPPING AND HST included June 29th!)   Order today!  

Inspiring children to be creative and use their imagination!

We plan on accepting orders starting this summer, with the first kits being shipped out to families in January 2020. We have already created brand new, original and fun curriculum for 'Artshine in a Box'. We are in the process of filming the video tutorials of Artshine Instructors teaching these unique projects.  We also have the backend infrastructure set up with Shopify, applicable apps, and Canada Post.

Currently, we are working on the details for a school-fundraising model, where schools will get a % back in exchange for helping us promote 'Artshine in a Box' to their students and families.  This incentive program will help us expand our reach quickly.  

Paint and pastels!

We are thrilled to be sending Artshine home, and to have the chance to impact the lives of even more people, across Canada, through art.  One of the goals of Artshine and Arts4All is to empower people and communities to create a more beautiful world.  With the 'Artshine in a Box' “Get One, Give One” model, with every monthly kit purchased, we will donate one lesson to a child who would otherwise not have access to this type of opportunity. This business design helps to enhance the quality of life of at-risk and underprivileged individuals, by expanding their education, improving their confidence, and enabling them to express themselves through art.

Risks and challenges

It is quite challenging and costly to create quality curriculum and have each lesson filmed and edited. We will be using the money raised to ensure we produce a high quality subscription service.

We already have an amazing team of artists and are on track to start taking orders this summer and start shipping in January 2020.
