About MoxieBox Art


At MoxieBox Art, they value creativity for ALL ages!


When we started our business three years ago, we set out with a vision to help every child explore their inner artist as a way to express themselves and instill confidence at a young age. This goal led to the creation of our curriculum based art boxes which provide children with the tools and knowledge they need to grow as an artist each month. What sets us apart from the rest is that our boxes are actually interactive art lessons that can serve as supplemental educational materials in school and at home. Our boxes are utilized in a variety of settings- including charter schools, homeschooling families, after school programs, and as an introductory activity for children/parents who love art but aren’t sure how to get started. - From their blog page, What is a MoxieBox?





What’s Inside a MoxieBox?


Each MoxieBox focuses on one lesson which consists of four or more steps that can be spread out over the course of a week or a month to serve as a daily art lesson for students. In addition to expanding their skillset, each child will finish their monthly lesson having created their own unique masterpiece to cherish and display in their own home!


Every MoxieBox comes with:

  • A complete, grade-appropriate art lesson.

  • All of the art supplies needed for that lesson (all individually provided for each student).

  • A spiral-bound, full-color manual introducing a new medium and artist or movement specific to that lesson.

In addition to expanding their skillset, each child will finish their monthly lesson having created their own unique masterpiece to cherish and display in their own home.



MoxieBoxes are split into four different levels based on what is appropriate for each grade or age. As the child grows as an artist, the box level grows with them.

  • Primary (Kindergarten-2nd grade)

  • Elementary (3rd-5th grade)

  • Junior High (6th-8th grade)

  • High School (9th-12th grade)




The Kindergarten through 5th-grade boxes require adult assistance and include a Moxie University page with additional information, as well as fun facts specific to that lesson. The Junior High and High School level boxes can be worked on independently and include a MoxieBox U page written by Matthew Kirby, creator of the popular game Apples to Apples, which offers additional information as well as critical thinking challenges.
