I was never a big fan of art "kits". It always seemed like there were many filler pieces (aka: inexpensive stuff you will never use that makes the kit look bigger and more impressive). I always thought kits were for nieces and nephews that enjoyed drawing and painting, just a great gift idea. However, if you take time to look for specific art kits, they are very complete and convenient.

What I love most about these sets is that no matter where you go, you can still create and design without hassle! If you want bigger sets for your home, there is a 58-piece Sketching Art Set and a 22-piece Watercolor Painting Set. What an inexpensive and easy way to dabble into different areas of art. Who knows, hidden talent might emerge!!
