My son began fostering a love and appreciation for art early. He was fascinated by abstracts from Monet and Van Gogh right off the bat. He would stare at them for hours, and he still does. It amazes me how drawn to art he is. He also enjoy creating. Whether it’s building, drawing or painting – his artistic skills are growing as he is.
While he may not be Van Gogh or Monet, I would never think of steering him away from his passion. I support and encourage him to bring his imagination to life and recently he’s doing more and more of that. When he received the Starry Night kit from Kidzaw he was so excited. This is still one of his favorite paintings and he got to recreate it himself.
Kidzaw offers many items designed for hands-on, creative learning. The company itself is dedicated to educating and inspiring young artists and the master Kitz, like my son received, do just that. They expose kids to famous artists and art history itself.
There are 6 different Master Kitz available. They feature van Gogh, Monet, Hokusai and Matisse. Each Master Kitz includes a booklet about the artist and style. It also includes everything needed to create their own Starry night, Water Lillies or Great Wave. They’re recommended for children ages 5 and older and retail for $29.99. You can get your Master Kitz from Kidzaw.com.
As soon as my son saw the box he was ready to open it. We looked through the booklet first where we learned more about van Gogh. We learned that Vincent van Gogh taught himself most of what he knew about art. We also learned that it was his brother that encouraged him to pursue his passion.
The Starry Night Master Kitz has everything my son needed to recreate one of his favorite paintings – twice! The
directions inspirational guidance was easy to follow and Dameon was creating in no time.
Step by step we watched as his masterpiece began to take form.
And then we admired the finished product.
I’m still trying to decide if we should put it in a frame or mat. Whichever we choose this will definitely be added to the Wall of Fame. we can’t wait to try the other Master Kitz and we both highly recommend these! Visit Kidzaw.com to browse for art inspiration/creations for your child!
