SketchBox is an art subscription box that sends hand-picked art supplies, with an art print, every month. Monthly boxes are $25.00/month and they ship worldwide. If you prefer higher end supplies, you can get the premium box for $35.00/month. I was sent the regular $25.00 box for review.

What's in the box? A group of hand selected art supplies, and one piece of art to inspire you. The premium box has higher quality supplies that tend to be more expensive.

When will the box ships? First business day of the month.

I love Sketchbox's box. There is a beautiful print on the lid and the logo looks like it was “sketched” on. The box is very cute and appropriate for an art subscription.
There wasn't a regular information card. There was a letter enclosed that explained everything in the box and a bit about the box.
All the art supplies were packaged together and wrapped with a bow.
The art print is by Morgan Ashley from San Francisco. She used all the supplies in this month's box, to create the print. I like the print and think is edgy. I am going to hang it in my office.
There was a SketchBox sticker included in the box.
Tombow Dual Brush Pen (3 Qty) $5.36 each. There were three Tombow Watercolor Markers. The markers have a fine point tip and a flexible brush tip.
This is a look at the Tombow markers.
The following colors were in the box:
- Color 228: (top). The top photo shows how each end writes and the color.
- Color 027 (bottom left) This is a medium brown shade
- Color N57 (bottom right) This is a dark grey color.
Sakura Micron 03 Ink Pen: $5.55 each These pens have a 03 size. I love using pens like this for journaling or scrapbooking. These pens can be used to outline your art.
This is a sample of how the Sakura pens write.
Princeton Art & Brush Co Shader $4.79 and round $3.59: Two Princeton Paint brushes were included in the box. There was a shader brush and a precision round brush.
This is a close up of the brushes. They are nicely made and can be used with various types of paint.
Final Thought: This box had a total value of $35.59. The cost of the box is $25.00, so I think the value of this box was pretty great. I am not an artist, but I thought there was a nice variety of supplies. There were 7 different tools, plus a beautiful, edgy print. SketchBox is a nice box for artists or people who love to be creative. Each month is a new box of goodies to use to be artistic.
