At MAKE, we believe that everybody is an artist. Art is a powerful tool that helps us to understand and express ourselves better in a way that is not always possible through words. MAKE helps you navigate your feelings and make sense of the world through art and guided reflection. With every box you receive, we learn more about you and personalise your boxes further, tailoring the experience to your personality and interests. Through time and with Machine Learning we will be able to help you uncover undiscovered skills.
Why this particular box?
Based on the results of your pre-assessment, we've chosen this box.
The materials contained in your MAKER BOX fall into the COGNITIVE/SYMBOLIC category.
This category support problem solving through art making. Cognitive thought is leading the creative process as they involve higher levels of mental functioning by inspiring abstract concept formation, logical and analytical thought processes, planning, decision making and cognitive maps.
The creative process support self-discovery and self-acceptance through intuitive planning, decision making, metaphor and self-oriented concept formation.
The three subcategories of these MAKER boxes:
- Experiment with the level of planning of the creative process
- Experiment with the level of control of the creative process
- Experiment with the level of complexity of the creative process
What is inside your MAKER box?
- 1 Map
- QR code
- A treat from MAKE! Inside your box, you will find a collectible emotion card. Collect it to get back at it or use it as inspiration for your artwork. You decide.
Colour the map without using two of the same colours next to each other.
Let's get started!
This is your experience. We provide a structure and guidance but you can always get creative and change the order! We divided the experience into three different audios. The whole experience will take a minimum of 20 minutes and it can take as long as you want.
Between each audio, you have a chance to draw or you can do so while listening to the audio. The final product will be a combination of all the different ideas that you came across during the 3 audios (basically what some artists and musicians call a Gesamtkunstwerk or a “Total Work of Art”)
When you’re ready, start the first audio.

Please hit this link to record your process and self-reflect on the activity. Self-reflection is fundamental for building on your experiences. It might be weird at first, but through time you will do it more naturally.
