Weekend Giveaway: Artterro

This giveaway is now closed. Check back soon for the winner!

Thought the giveaways were over? Not quite. Today I’ve got a weekend giveaway from new sponsor Arrterro! This is a great company right up Simple Mom readers’ alleys… they create eco-friendly, family-oriented art supplies and kits—beautiful items that’ll help you and your kids create frame-worthy art.

Artterro is the brainchild of Forrest Espinoza and Jennifer Conn, two artists and mothers from Madison, Wisconsin.  They started their company because they believe everyone is born creative, and that sometimes the pace of our modern lives keeps us from making time for art. That’s where Artterro comes in.

Their goal is to make it fun, easy and affordable for people to create art with family and friends.  Each Artterro eco art kit is a collection of beautiful, natural materials and creative project ideas.  They offer a fun, engaging art experience that delights creative kids and grown-ups alike!

Artterro is offering two readers the chance to win a selection of eco art kits worth over $50.  Each package includes a Creativity Kit, a Wire & Bead Art Kit and an Art Journal Kit.

The Creativity Kit: Set the creative spirit free with a beautiful assortment of handmade paper, 100% wool felt shapes, glass and wooden beads and more–perfect for making bookmarks, ornaments, gift tags, small sculptures and collages.

The Wire & Bead Kit: Twist and bend amazing sculptures with US-made copper wire and glass marbles, plus an assortment of wooden, glass and shell beads.

Both kits include a bonus project–the box turns into a frame for your finished artwork!

Artterro also teamed up with Strathmore Artist Papers to create the Art Journal Kit, a unique product for budding artists to easily explore their creativity through art journaling.  Artists of all ages can learn fun doodling, drawing and collage techniques with inspiring materials.  Available in five fun colors.
