For kids over three years old, art students and adults alike this is one awesome product. It's a well kept secret that Coldwater Creek the clothing store also offers a variety of gift items. I was thrilled to find art pencils and water colors in a black canvas zip-around tote with handles. Perfect for taking along on a trip or a visit to grandma since the canvas is easily cleaned with running water over it and hanging up to dry. I love the portability and organization of it - one zip and it is all packed away neatly. Students will love it because the black canvas handles are practical for carrying and the set will always look chic and attractive.
Let me tell you this little treasure chest contains 8 fine tip markers, 8 medium tip markers, 24 color pencils, 24 watercolors with mixing containers, 2 drawing pencils, 2 natural bristle paint brushes and one each pencil eraser, sandpaper and sharpener. A real steal at $39. and a true find for the art lover.
If you are a crafter or like me love watercolors (the set contains three separate color co-ordinated flip top containers = total 24 water colors) but long for a little order in your life this is a must have. If you have a younger child you may want to consider Coldwater Creeks red canvas art set, it is smaller with less art materials but it will keep them away from your own art set - in theory at least:)
