Outside The Box Creation


We live in a world where art budget cuts are prevalent and our kids’ eyes are often glued to screens, Outside The Box Creation allows you the unique opportunity to connect and create with your child, while also teaching them (in the most fun & imaginative way) what’s so wonderful about art & helping them enhance their creative problem solving skills, self-esteem & empathy.

Founder Beth Herrild is passionate about art. She has a degree in Fine Arts from University of Wisconsin and 12 years of art education experience and a Master’s Degree in Whole Systems Design. When Beth’s three children entered elementary school, she was appalled at the lack of quality visual arts education and the lack of encouragement for kids to access their potential creativity through art expression. During that time, she witnessed firsthand how art took a backseat to other subjects and when it was taught, was approached in a manner too formulaic to properly allow for pure imagination. So, she dreamed up Outside The Box Creation. Now, Beth’s beautifully curated art boxes are available to everyone—from homeschoolers, to grandparents and parents. It’s time to make some memories (& masterpieces)!

It’s Not Enough to Do Well, We Want to do Good!

We’re socially conscious & believe in giving back to the community. We donate boxes, art supplies, and time to several local non-profits and organizations. One of those organizations is Washington Corrections Center for Women, in Gig Harbor, WA. Moms and children have the option of enjoying art together during their visits & children can take the book, art supplies, & mom’s artwork home. In the last year we have donated to Freedom Education Project, Whidbey Island Arts Council, and CADA (Citizens Against Domestic Violence) Now, YOU can purchase a box to donate to Children’s Hospital in Seattle.We unequivocally support Black Lives Matter!

We are also continuously working to make our art boxes as eco-friendly as possible. We recently switched to compostable bamboo paint mixing trays and compostable water cups. The kraft paper box packing is intended to also be used as a cover to protect your work surface.  We include recycled paper towels/napkins for wiping in some projects. We also choose the actual art supplies very carefully, taking into consideration how eco friendly they are and how sustainably they were manufactured, while of course having to factor in cost. We strive to provide quality products that are non-toxic, and as sustainably manufactured and eco-friendly as possible.
