Fearless Friday, Artist Gifts

 

You know the old adage in sports, Equipment is Everything?

Well same goes for art, artist’s need good supplies

I admit, I have a passion for art supplies, of all types and mediums

I have found some really great ones this fall which would make perfect gifts for yourself or artist friends

 

 

 

 

I recently bought some new sketch books with different papers

 

Black sketch pad, available here

 

This black paper has tons of possibilities

 

 

 

 

 

I’m experimenting with gray paper too, which I’ve used for pastel but not any other medium

Toned Gray sketch book available here

 

 

 

 

How about a desktop easel?

This is my new favorite purchase, it’s a mini easel, with a drawer for supplies.  It’s perfect for a table or lap desk

Arteza Wooden Desktop Easel available here

 

 

It’s 13″ x 10″ and the perfect size for using on a lap desk, you can sit in a comfy chair and sketch away!

 

 

 

 

I also bought another organizer like the one I recently told you about before, I LOVE this thing!

 

It’s perfect for holding a variety of different pens and pencils, with flexible rubber slots that can accommodate skinny pencils or fatter markers and paint pens

 

 

 

 

I keep my favorite and most used pens in one organizer.  It keeps all my most used utensils where I can find them or transport them easily to another location

 

 

 

 

I keep the other one empty,

ready to fill with the palette of colored pens, pencils or markers

for the current project I’m working on

It keeps them handy, organized and not rolling around on the desk top

 

 

 

It’s a Sew Emma stand available here

 

Paint pens come in handy sometimes, I like this set by Posca available here

 

 

I used the white one for the raccoon face pictured with the black pad above, and the gold one for this angel {the white gown and the face were painted with white ink and watercolor

 

 

This Tombow mini eraser is great for delicate touch ups, and erasing in tight spots, it is available here

 

 

 

 

 

 

Moko LED Desk Lamp is great for turning on when you need more light

It is battery powered, adjusts in many angles, and folds for storage

lamp available here

 

 

Another great gift to give or receive is a monthly subscription art box

You can sign up for 1 month, 3 months or a year and can cancel at any time

They are always full of goodies, and they keep the contents secret

 Just like getting a present!

 

See Sketch Box here

 

 

 

See Art Snacks here

 

All of these supplies are good quality and affordable

I hope I’ve given you some gift ideas for your family, friends or yourself!

{don’t tell Santa but I ordered the December boxes from each company for myself…

🥳

 

 

 

 

Super boy and I are still having lots of fun doing the November Doodlewash Challenge

    I enjoyed seeing your list of art supplies, Jenna – great gift ideas! I have never tried the sketchbox. I will have to give it a try in the new year. I love art supplies too and have most of the ones you recommend! 😜

  5. Jenna, my son was quite the young artist. I made sure he had art lessons and he actually loved it for three years or so, and then he completely lost interest, but took up music. I don’t think I had ever told you…my only experience with art supplies!
