My local Blick art store sells regular art supplies like pencils, paints, canvas and paper. They also sell a large variety of cool art stuff, mostly for children. Set on tables in the front of the store like a colorful art buffet are fancifully shaped crayons, organic markers, adorable drawing kits, and crazy coloring books. As a kid I thought a regular large box of crayons was seductive. I can’t imagine how excited I would have been had these beautifully designed art supplies been around back then. As an adult I get a little giddy just looking at them. Feast your eyes on some of the wonderful things on display.
Cool Art Stuff
I totally want to feed my creative juices and make some great fingerprint art. Don’t you?
Do It Yourself!
These kits are so pretty I’m not sure I’d want to take them out of the box.
Cute Coloring Books and Journals
Not Your Basic Crayons
Fun for Adults Too!
Have procrastination? There’s a pen for that!
A couple years ago I wrote a post on Creative Toys from the Art Store that included some of the things that I saw today at the same store. I guess cute art kits are always on sale at Blick.
What do you think of the cutesy crayons, pens and journals? I love looking but I didn’t buy. I guess I like my art stuff pretty basic. On the other hand I think some of these items would make great gifts.
