Quarter 2: Mindful Mark-Making

Mindfulness is a state of being fully present in what you are doing, leaving outside distractions behind, allowing relaxation and calm. Mark-making is one way to facilitate a state of mindful awareness. In this box, we’ll take a wonderful trip through the relaxing world of mark-making as we couple shimmery pearlescent watercolor brushstrokes with fun patterns and layers using opaque gel pens in metallic and blue hues.

If this is your first time hearing about UNBOUND, here is some more information on what this experience is about:

What is UNBOUND?

It is our mission at Archer and Olive to share the empowering tool of creativity with as many people as possible. We strive to help people achieve their goals, exercise their creativity, and provide them with the tools to manage their mental health. We hope UNBOUND can bring these tools of creativity to a wider audience, and further help people with their mental health and wellness. Watch the promo video here:

UNBOUND is a guided creative experience designed to remove barriers and give you everything you need to start benefiting from creativity for your mental wellness. The experience will include a curated box of supplies and detailed video tutorials from an experienced artist.

Taking time to do something you enjoy, especially something creative, can positively benefit your mental health— but it can be difficult to know where to start or how to find the time. Life can move quickly with schedules, to-do lists, daily tasks, and unexpected things that pop up. We spend more and more time on our phones, computers, in meetings, or scrolling— and less time doing what truly brings us joy. We hope UNBOUND helps you break through these barriers to creativity by offering guided experiences and creative projects that are:
- appealing yet approachable
- guided yet freeing
- calming yet fun

Each quarter we will release fun, approachable projects with a valuable creative experience that we hope will leave you feeling encouraged, enlightened, and UNBOUND.

Meet Your Guide

To guide you through your creative journey, our resident artist and educator Lori George will be creating inspiring projects with guided instruction.
