Our latest release, Gouache paint Stix, is my personal favourite in the entire Life of Colour collection so far. That is a big statement! Doing art on the couch, under a blanket with a hot cup of coffee is a dream we all have... With mess-free art supplies is a lot easier to cosy up and create!

Christmas time is special for many reasons. At Life of Colour, it is special because you get to be creative and colourful, Christmas style. As always, we encourage you to be creative and have fun. Spend time with family by crafting or making your own Christmas cards, Christmas decorations or Christmas tree decorations and spread your love of crafting by sharing our colourful products with your loved ones.
There are countless fantastic artists all over the web, but we can't not mention the ones that are close to our hearts because we know their styles, who they are and the way they paint the world with colour!
"Educators tell us that art encourages fine motor skills, neural development, and problem-solving abilities and that it can be used effectively to teach and understand other key subjects such as reading, writing, math, and science. Therapists tell us that art is valuable because it allows children to process their world, to deal with sometimes scary emotions in a safe way, and because it gives them critical sensory input. Artists tell us that art is important for its own sake—as a source of beauty and expression, as well as simply for the process of creating. Kids tell us that art is fun, an activity they enjoy. Parents tell us that art is vital to their families because it keeps everyone engaged and happy and helps with the sometimes difficult transitions of the day."
