Congratulations to Ruth, Sarah, Oisín, Ava, Karl, Olaf, Seán, Lucy, Isobel, Aoileann, Nicola and Róise on completion of their Botticelli Birth of Venus masterpieces today at Art Academy art camp. They have done a wonderful job spending their Easter holidays creating beautiful art, learning new skills and making friends.
Da Vinci Box is a project that I am excited to share with you. It’s something that I have been working on for a little over a year now. It will finally be set to launch this Autumn.
It is Ireland’s premier, fine art supplies, monthly, subscription box. Designed to unlock your inner artist and let you create art from the comfort of your own home, no artist’s studio necessary. Professional art supplies will arrive at your door every month. You just set an hour aside for yourself, put the kettle on and enjoy creating in your own space.
At Da Vinci Box we believe everyone should enjoy making art and that you were created to create. So keep an eye out in the coming weeks for more updates and I will reveal more when I can. There is a place holder website up for the moment, while the grand masterpiece is being finessed, so bear with me. You can like, share and follow on instagram and facebook in the meantime. I can’t wait to unveil it all officially and start to build a creative Da Vinci Box art community together.
Congratulations to Laoise, Ryan, Gwen, Evan, James, Zoë, Rose, Emma, and Heidi on completion of their Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer by Gustav Klimt master copy.

There is a really cool story behind this painting illustrated well in the film Woman in Gold starring Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds. Watch the trailer here. You can check it the full length feature on iTunes here.
