I'm starting my Christmas list. And number one on my list is an art kit. On the odd days that my brain is functional I'm bored. I used to draw and sculpt when I was in high school and college. I think it is time to take this up again. Since I haven't done this is over 20 years I have no trouble stating with art kits that have instruction books in them. I like this one since it has a little bit of everything:
Walter Foster who makes art supplies. I probably own some somewhere. I also like their calligraphy kits (another art form I haven't done in decades) and pencil drawing kits.
