Clementine Art Kits

Clementine Art Kits are the brainchild of Diana Mercer, a co-founder of Clementine Studios which opened in Boulder, Colorado back in 2003.

Diana, along with Susanna Carrillo, designed the studio as a "place for children to imagine, create, and express themselves using colorful and engaging art materials."

Clementine Art Kits are made with the highest quality materials and the belief that modern children need art to develop their ability to think outside the box. Kits include organic play dough, sculpture, collage, painting, printmaking, and watercolor.

Most adults I know don't believe themselves to be creative (my mother included, who has created some wonderfully imaginative gifts and cards for her friends and family). I believe it's important to instill in our children the belief that there is more to creativity than natural talent or possessing complicated skills...that we all can and should use our imaginations to create and make the world more beautiful.

Visit clementineart.com to read descriptions of all of their kits which start at $36.00.
