Locally owned and family operated, Mini Artbox is made to transform creative talents in one place. Owner, Natalie Sarabia aka Mini Artbox, has been collecting art supplies her whole life. At a young age, her late grandfather, an artist, would teach her and her sister how to draw horses, and make origami cats and dogs. Her parents dedicated a room in their house to paint on canvas, make homemade halloween costumes, and airbrush T-shirts. Her love of crafts has grown as she has become a "jack of all trades", teaching herself how to body paint, screen print, and make paper flowers. One day, she realized her art collection became too large to store in one room. And there, it sparked her idea to create a Pinterest workshop and share her collection with others.
Mini Artbox is now home for aspiring artists and creators alike. An art class outside of school. It is a place where you will feel comfortable making a mess, while creating something wonderfully yours.
