Our ABCs

Art Box Credo

We believe the act of creating is a fundamental need of every individual and an innate connection to the Divine.  We believe the expression of the soul is limitless and appears in a multitude of shapes and forms.  Whether painting a portrait or shaping paper mache, whipping up a batch of cookies or preparing a gourmet meal, designing an enchanting garden or an exquisite bouquet from its bounty, we believe that cultivating the land…or clay…or fabric…or wax… or anything artful, is cultivating the mind and is equally fundamental.

We believe in holding something old in one hand while reaching for something new with the other, and get giddy when a creative spark ignites the imagination on how to combine the two.  We believe in wearing wrinkles and scars like badges of well-earned honor knowing that they help to tell the story of who we are and where we’ve been.  We believe in collaboration with other creative souls so that everyone can land their feet on a star.

Our foundation lies in hard work and hard play, and we believe that the practice of creating is an intricate and amusing dance between both.  We believe that each day is an adventure with opportunities to learn from mistakes and to shore up courage to take new risks.  To lovingly nudge each other past our comfort zones.  To bravely bolster each other when we doubt.  To inspire each other to do what we love.  To build a community of friendship and support.  From farming to fine art, to create from that most fertile core in the heart.  We believe in art and you.
