ART BOX: 3rd Edition

THEME: Pattern & Repetition

Art Box is a packaged creative experience that allows the community to experiment at home, providing lessons to create and learn with Toledo, OH regional artists. 

All Featured Artists work in a variety of mediums. What they have in common is their use and application of patterns. This edition also highlights public art with several of the Featured Artists who have created works in the collection.  Additional sculptural work that embodies pattern and repetition is also showcased. 

Thank you to our featured artists for making this edition come to life! Mercé Culp, Louise Jones AKA Ouizi, Ken Dushane III AKA PHYBR, Mary Gaynier, Natalie Lanese, Lindsay Scypta, Sandra Rivers-Gill, Nick Felaris, and Caroline Jardine. All video lessons were produced by Ellen Dziubek.

Art Box is a specially selected set of quality art supplies for all ages, skill levels, and interests.
