:: Art is for Everyone ::
We believe that we are all born with a desire to create. We believe that the world would be a better place if all people had the opportunity to explore their natural desire to make art. We believe that we only need a handful of minutes each day to nurture our creativity. We believe in spending time to honour our joy in creative practice with simple, beautiful tools: your favourite brush, a beautifully textured paper, and exquisite hand-crafted gemstone and mineral paints. We believe that Art is for Everyone.
Art is for Everyone is a series of instructional videos on YouTube by artist Kateri Ewing. These short lessons are meant to inspire you, (no matter your skill level or experience) to create with a sense of joy and accomplishment in making something beautiful. The Art is for Everyone palette includes ten carefully chosen paints that will be used in all of the Art is for Everyone lessons, and is a collaboration of love and friendship between Kim Wildthorne and Kateri Ewing. We hope that offering this beautiful selection of paints in one silver treasure box will make your creative practice simpler and more meaningful.
The ten pigments in this palette were chosen to create the widest rainbow of colour mixes, with a subtle and natural, quiet beauty. Handcrafted from the finest all natural earth minerals that consists of 10 half size pans of artist grade, lightfast watercolors in a portable reusable metal tin.

These mineral watercolor paints have an organically beautiful granulation and can be layered from thick to thin. Each pan is hand poured to exacting traditional recipes and techniques in our studio using the highest quality earth pigments, and natural watercolor binding medium made from distilled water, honey, glycerine, and the sap of acacia trees.
+ Each curated palette is sent with an exclusive Wildthorne hand letterpressed artisan swatch card that nestles snugly within your watercolor palette ready to be painted by you. Our letterpress cards are crafted one at a time with sustainability and environmental responsibility in mind. The paper is 100% tree free cotton made locally in the United States as a byproduct of the cotton garment industry. With a soft luxurious and tactile feel to the touch, it is a surface that invites your artistry.
