Local woman creates art magazine for kids

Bothell resident, Eva Soukalova created a magazine for kids called arTree. She feels strongly that there is a need for kids to be exposed to more art.

Bothell resident, Eva Soukalova, is an art director with a background in child education and psychology. She feels strongly that there is a need for kids to be exposed to more art. This was her inspiration to create a magazine for kids called arTree.

Soukalova said, “The public school programs are being cut, art classes are expensive and parents do not have enough time to look for high-quality art projects online. I love art and ever since my kids were born, I was trying to teach them how to appreciate it and, of course, how to create it. I created hundreds of projects and lesson plans and decided that a magazine is the best way to share it with everybody. After all, which kid does not like to get their own mail?”
