Cupixel At-home Painting Experience Announces Free Refill with Purchase of Art Box Due to Recent Crisis
In response to the current need for creative activities that are relaxing, Cupixel offers a free refill box to extend the at-home painting experience. Each art box comes with professional-grade sketch pencils, paints, and brushes that can be used for up to 15 artworks. The refill box includes an extra canvas and frame.
Cupixel, Inc. (Headquarters Boston, MA), a provider of a new painting experience, announces that it will offer a free refill box with the purchase of its complete art box to support the recent demand for at-home activities due to the current crisis. Cupixel is proven to be an effective outlet to decompress and reduce anxiety. The Cupixel app also provides a community of artists that users can engage with to bring a sense of connection during this time of social disconnection. The increase in demand for at-home activities is a result of companies asking employees to work remotely and most public schools being closed until April 27.
“For most of the country, the next few weeks will be in isolation with work and school shifting to remote locations,” says Elad Katav, Founder & CEO of Cupixel, Inc. “It’s important now more than ever to maintain a healthy mindset by engaging in indoor activities that can help you feel connected and stimulate a healthy emotional state. It is proven that art activities can help you reach a meditative state and reduce anxiety. Offering a free refill seemed like the right thing to do as more people will need relief during this stressful time.”
With its innovative art box, Cupixel offers a creative platform for people of all artistic backgrounds from novice to professional. Each box contains everything needed to create personalized artwork, including professional-grade pencils, paints, brushes, canvas, frame and more. The Cupixel app available for both Android and IOS serves as a remote artist assistant offering step-by-step guidance to complete the artwork. The app also offers 24-7 “creative support” from professional artists.
Users can choose to paint an image from a collection of 1000 licensed artworks or to upload any photo from their personal library which the app transforms into a paintable image. Cupixel’s gallery includes images of celebrities, pets, flowers, inspirational quotes and even classic artists such as Matisse and Mondrian.
NPR recently reported that art is a means of reducing stress, stating that “flexing our creative side can give us a stronger sense of agency – the ability to solve problems by imagining possible solutions.” In another article by NPR, Christianne Strang, a professor of neuroscience at the University of Alabama Birmingham and the former president of the American Art Therapy Association said “Creativity in and of itself is important for remaining healthy, remaining connected to yourself and connected to the world.”
