Do you have a little artist in your life? I bet everyone knows someone that loves to draw, paint, or color. All my kiddos love some form of art but my oldest daughter really loves it! She’s always painitng or coloring something new everyday. That’s why I knew when I saw the Essential Art Set by Alex Brands that she would love a set like that.

Who is Alex Brands?

My oldest daughter loves this set. She really like how it comes in a carry case to hold all of it and she can take it anywhere she goes. She really likes that there are a variety of colors that are beautiful and not just your normal few colors that come in a 8 pack of crayons. I think it is a very nice art set for anyone that loves to color or draw.


The Essential Art Set would certainly make a great gift this upcoming holiday season.
