Lauren Dennis-Perelmuter officially launched The Art Box Academy in the spring of 2020 as she saw an immense need to ensure children and students who were home due to the pandemic and school closures still had access to hands-on innovative creative art lessons and projects.
What evolved as a packaged, portioned and deliverable Art Box filled with great master artist and architecture lessons continued to resonate not only with children at home but additional institutions in need. The Art Box Academy expanded its product line customizing lessons for non-profit organizations, school districts, camps, pediatric hospitals and luxury resorts filling the gap of closed or modified pediatric playrooms and hotel kids clubs ensuring post pandemic needs were and continue to be met.
As the founder of its sister company, Art To Grow On Children’s Art Center, a mobile art education company that directly brings art programs to preschool and elementary school campuses since 2000, Programs are temporarily on hold due to school and site modifications effected by the COVID 19 pandemic. Art To Grow On Inc. will be back on campuses once ordinances allow outside vendors and programs!
Using their Jumbo Art Boxes, outdoor and small group Summer 2021 Camps are running! Their very successful Jr. Architects and Artists Camp – Outdoors will be running through City of Manhattan Beach in addition to daily and weekly mini-camps at their new Studio in Rolling Hills Estates! Ages 5-10 years old.
Ms. Dennis-Perelmuter and her team believe each and every child has innate talent and has the creative potential to dream, create, innovate and imagine. Art lessons are inspired by architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Frank Gehry, and IM Pei and even includes a lesson on how to create a blueprint! Additional artists such as Picasso, Van Gogh and Andy Warhol’s Soup Cans are also featured in their Art and Activity Boxes and Art Lesson Packets.
“There’s nothing more important than investing in our children to ensure they are optional thinkers and creative human beings.” – LDP
