August marks Art Appreciation Month, and the DOHVINCI brand from Hasbro, Inc. is putting a creative spin on the occasion this year by honoring six seminal works of art with incredibly detailed recreations made out of 100% DOHVINCI design compound!
The collection features classic paintings “The Scream” by Edvard Munch, “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” by Georges Seurat, “Girl with a Pearl Earring” by Johannes Vermeer, “The Starry Night” by Vincent van Gogh, “Sunflowers” by Vincent van Gogh, and “Mona Lisa” by Leonardo da Vinci, each uniquely reimagined entirely in colorful DOHVINCI compound.
Introduced in 2014 by the makers of PLAY-DOH brand modeling compound, DOHVINCI features a unique design compound and an innovative Styler tool that together deliver a creative experience that is highly intuitive, enjoyable, and completely engrossing for kids ages 6 and up.
Fans are encouraged to commemorate Art Appreciation Month and celebrate their inner artist by creating their own DOHVINCI masterpieces, and sharing images on Facebook.com/PlayDoh. With so many colors and application techniques and a design compound that sticks to a variety of surfaces such as wood, glass, ceramic, and paper – the creative possibilities are nearly endless! Check out some of the kits below to help bring out your inner artist!
DOHVINCI has a large assortment of kits to get your children’s creative juices flowing! Girls will love to decorate their very own vanity set with the DOHVINCI Style & Store Vanity Complete Design Kit, which includes vanity base, drawer, mirror, 2-piece flower attachment, add-on pieces, Styler, and 4 Deco Pop tubes in pink, blue, white, and a yellowish/green. Another fun one is the DOHVINCI Jewelry Tree Kit, where girls can showcase their creativity and accessories all in one place! Cover this jewelry tree with bold, vibrant 3D lines using the included Styler and colorful Deco Pop tubes. You can also add some cool swirly effects with the included multi-colored Blendables tube! When you’ve created your masterpiece, you can hang your earrings in the punch-out holes and hang your bracelets or necklaces on the branches. Creativity never looked so fashionable!
The Spotlight Spin Studio is pretty cool too!! Your DOHVINCI designs can enter all-new dimensions with this unique design-and-display turntable. To get started, load a Deco Pop tube into the Styler and place a flat or 3D project on the motorized spinning platform. While designing, shine the stable white light onto your project as you squeeze the Styler to create bold 3D lines, swirls, and anything else you can imagine. You can also spin by hand for a freestyle experience. When you’re ready to display your designs, choose from 4 colorful and flashing light styles to feature your work of art in a spectacular lightshow! With two vase projects, three flat projects, a Styler tool, and six Deco Pop tubes (including 2 Blendables colors), this super studio comes with everything you need to turn arts-and-crafts time into a dazzling experience! Just an FYI this kit does require three double AA batteries, which are not included.
The recreations of these famous paintings are amazing. I can’t believe they were created entirely out of DOHVINCI compound!! Seeing this makes me feel artsy, so why not dive into a few art projects this weekend with your child and celebrate Art Appreciation Month together. I highly recommend checking out one of the kits above. Your child will have fun designing their project and you get to spend quality time with your child.
Enjoy celebrating Art Appreciation Month and don’t forget to share your DOHVINCI works of art on Facebook.com/PlayDoh.
