All children have the right to quality art supplies to express themselves.
We are so excited to be partnering with several local organizations, with cheering on from Portland Buy Local, to support high quality, age-appropriate art kits as gifts to children in our greater Portland and Maine community.
Each kit will contain exactly the materials we use in all our kits, so all the very thoughtfully curated all-natural or post-consumer materials.
Each kit will go in a cute little bag with a sticker, ribbons, and a little card sending love and creativity.
What might a gift for a child in the community contain?
> high-quality crayons
> a journal
> pencils and sharper
> high-quality paints and paper
> a cotton bag to hold your supplies in
Please if you have any requests for your gift, please note them in the comments and we will do our very best. For instance, you might want to gift a larger kit, create a kit for an older teen. etc.
Would you like a special card, that notes your donation on behalf of another child? We can write one up and leave it for you in another special bag. It will be one of our gift cards, noting your donation.
When can I pick up my shop item(s) from the studio?
We are open for Art kit pick up on Saturdays 9 am – noon.
We also have a limited number of additional art supplies for you to buy in the studio, that we rotate monthly.
Please note, our studio is currently closed for in-person teaching this winter, but we have fingers crossed for Spring art-making with children, with masks, in the garden!
Where is the studio?
Love Lab Studio is at 26 Brackett St, Portland Maine in Portland’s sweet west end! It’s a fun way to wave through the window, see our changing studio window display, and is very safe.
How are we keeping things safe + healthy?
*Please Note: Curb-side pick-up Instructions:
We strictly follow the City of Portland, Maine guidelines for the safety of all customers. Please call us when you arrive, and we will put your bag outside on our bench table or yellow giraffe shelf. Look for our phone number printed on our studio door OR call or text: 207.332.5790. We wash, and then sanitize our hands and wear masks when placing bags, and ask that customers consider doing the same. Please also maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from any other people, including us, in front of the studio, and wait in your car or across the street if another person is out front picking up. If you want to come inside to see our mini art supply shop (located right inside the door) it is 1 person at a time inside, and you must sanitize your hands before.
Would you like us to mail OR deliver to your doorstep?
We can deliver locally to your doorstep in the Portland area for a $10 delivery fee, or we can mail your package if you choose that option. We mail packages every Friday afternoon.
Thank you for your support + love for a healthy, creative, safe + happy 2021.
