Beautiful Materials Inspire Creativity

We’ve been getting some exciting deliveries here at Artterro lately!
It’s always fun to see a big box of our amazing materials before they go into kits.  It reminds us an important part of our mission is to get artist-quality materials into the hands of kids.  Because if you really want them to develop creativity, artistic motivation and confidence, they need to work with supplies that inspire!  Like our gorgeous natural shell coin beads:

That goes for adult artists too!  You don’t have to be extravagant but you do need to feel inspired to use the materials you buy so they don’t languish on the shelf.  We love to recommend artists and crafters mix it up with high-quality supplies and random recycled items.  For instance, paring our luscious, handmade (and 100% recycled) decorative papers with magazine clippings, newspaper, photos or even pieces of packaging can add up to an interesting mix of textures and patterns.

Handmade paper

There’s still time to stock up on the handmade paper in our Bookmaking Kit–FREE with any $50 purchase at!  Just use coupon code FREEBOOK.  And, it’s never too early to start thinking about gifts for the holidays, or activities for the chilly, snowbound days to come.

    Your products look beautiful! My kids are 8, 7 4, and 2. We try to do arts and crafts 2-3 times per week. We like to combine store bought items with things from nature we collect outside. We would have a blast with these kits! My kids and I would be thrilled to win some of them!

    Hi… I am entering a giveaway on Family Home and Life featuring your kits… I especially like the Wool Felt Jewelry Kit which I think you are calling the wearables kit… it looks like so much fun and if I don’t win a free kit, I am thinking of purchasing one for my granddaughter… they are priced reasonably… thank you for your efforts in this area… Patricia Ann

    Love the wonderful kits that you provide for all ages to use together. Just visited Family Home and Life and am so pleased to see all the variety in your kits. With six grands under 8, your kits keep ideas for hand craft activities fresh and exciting. Love the bookmaking and wool jewelry for their exciting color and designs. All are lovely and love that they are made in Wisconsin.
