Jessica Loves: Kimmel Kids Art Products

There’s nothing quite as special as witnessing a child tap into her creative potential. Put a crayon or paintbrush into a curious toddler’s hands and anything is possible! So I’ve always loved and appreciated businesses that give kids the tools they need to create.

One business I can’t say enough good things about is Karen Kimmel Studios, which produces a line of art tools and bespoke items called Kimmel Kids, designed to stimulate creative thinking and empower children to make their mark.

Karen is an LA-based artist and designer who does incredible work for major national brands like Nike and Target. She’s also a mom and ardent arts advocate (just check out the amazing Crafting Community family retreat she runs). After running a successful Art of Exchange stencil workshop series, she was inspired to develop a line of kids’ products and art tools, which include canvas cases, colorful laser-cut plastic stencils, and a grommet-bound activity book.

There’s a strong environmentally-friendly message running throughout as well, in the cardboard stencils and nubby canvas cases. Shop the adorably modern Kimmel Kids line here. And show us your little one’s handiwork when it’s done!
