Thank you to Jerry's Artarama for providing a complimentary art supplies sample for us to base this review upon and for providing a gift card for our contest prize. All opinions expressed are my own.
In our homeschool, we use an art curriculum that suggested we use supplies from the website Jerry’s Artarama. Therefore, when we were offered an art set from that site, I was really excited to try out their products. We were sent the First Impressions Complete Art Studio Set For Kids which includes 24 transparent watercolor cakes, 24 assorted colored pencils, 15 assorted oil pastels, 10 water-based markers, 2 plastic trays for color mixing, 1 artists’ paint brush, a pencil sharpener, and vinyl eraser, which all stores away neatly in a sturdy, clear plastic case.
Both my kids love this set, even though my oldest son (12 years old), Avery, isn’t as much of an artist as his 6 ½ year old brother, Quinn. The set is really nicely set up and includes everything they need for art in our homeschool, so they love sharing and having everything they need stored away nicely in this case. The supplies themselves are high quality - much nicer than you can purchase in most retail stores - so that’s another plus. It has really taken their art to a new level and I love seeing their creative juices flowing when they use this set.
The assortment of colors is great and all of the supplies have vibrant, deep, and beautiful colors. Avery really likes the colored pencils because he says they are “easier to use” but Quinn particularly loves using the oil pastels because he can blend and overlap them to make more color depths. I cannot say enough good things about this set and how happy we are with all of the supplies included. I have already recommended this kit to several other homeschooling families and look forward to purchasing more art supplies from Jerry’s Artarama in the future.
The First Impressions Complete Art Studio Set For Kids can be purchased here at JerrysArtarama.com. Usually it retails for $39.95 but it’s currently on sale for just $19.99!
Good luck in the drawing!
