Learn to Draw & Paint - Art Kits for Beginners

Learning how to draw & paint is easy with art kits designed specially for beginners.  Art kits include the supplies, tools, and instruction a beginner needs to get started drawing & painting with confidence.

You'll find our newest selection of Beginner Art Kits in the Paint & Draw Art Kits section of the store!

The Pencil Drawing Kit from Walter Foster is an all-inclusive art kit for aspiring artists wanting to learn basic pencil drawing techniques.

Kit includes 6 drawing pencils, 1 charcoal pencil, 1 flat sketching pencil, an artist's triangle, kneaded & rubber erasers, 2 tortillons, sandpaper block, sharpener, drawing paper & pad, and a 32-page project book.

Most of the pencil drawing supplies in the kit are self-explanatory, but there are a couple that are not as common, such as the tortillons and sandpaper block.  The wrapped paper tortillon tool is used to blend and soften pencil strokes, while the sandpaper block is used to control the shape of the pencil point.

The project book includes step-by-step instructions and detailed illustrations for a variety of pencil drawing projects, including portraits, animals, landscapes, and more.  An ideal introductory kit for anyone wanting to learn how to draw!

The Watercolor Pencil Art Kit is from the Getting Started series of quality art kits for beginners from Faber-Castell.

You'll learn how make vibrant watercolor paintings using the specially formulated watercolor pencils in the kit. Simply create a drawing as you would with regular colored pencils, then blend the colors using a paintbrush & water.

I've been impressed with the Creative Studio line of art kits from Faber-Castell.  They include all the quality art materials you need to get started and provide easy step-by-step instructions written for beginners.  And, they're very nicely packaged for gift giving!

The How to Draw Cartoons! Kit from General Pencil Company is perfect for anyone wanting to explore creative cartooning.
