Your initial purchase is the starter kit. Think of it as your "Confident Artist Gear." It includes a light tablet, full-size art supplies, access to online art instruction and two Guide Dots project rolls.
Will I be auto-billed?
The starter kit begins a monthly subscription. You will be auto-charged each month. You can cancel at any time.
How many projects do I get each month?
Each box includes two enriching and entertaining projects, complete with step-by-step video tutorials that teach both drawing and shading/painting.
How much help will my child need?
Guide Dots is designed to be used with little to no adult support. After the initial setup, some children may need help getting the hang of the one-of-a-kind drawing process, but you will be surprised at how engaged they are once they get rolling.
Do I need multiple kits for multiple children?
How many kits you’ll want for your family depends entirely on the experience you are looking to create. The starter kit comes with plenty of supplies for two children; however, the projects cannot be done simultaneously. If your kids are good with taking turns or you are hoping to engage them at different times during the day, one starter kit will work. If you are trying to create a “classroom-like” environment where multiple children are creating side by side and, as a result, you get some mama/papa peace, then we recommend purchasing multiple starter kits.
How long do supplies last?
Guide Dots stocks its starter kit with full-size, artist-grade supplies that can last for years if handled with care.
Which level should I buy?
A professional art instructor thoughtfully designed each of our projects so they are developmentally appropriate for children within a specific age range. That said, we do recognize that every child is different. If you think your child can level up, then we suggest doing so as the Level 2 kit comes with additional supplies. If the Level 2 projects prove too challenging, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will happily send you Level 1 projects until your child is ready to move up.
