- We recommend this product for ages 8 and up
What It Is
This Drawing Set is an 18-piece starter kit of drawing tools for working on line art, charcoal, and pencil designs. It includes eight graphite pencils, three charcoal pencils, one sketch stick, two charcoal sticks, two sharpeners, one kneaded eraser, and one drawing eraser. Directions are not included.
Is It Fun?
There are no instructions included with this kit so using the tools does require a bit of background knowledge. However for those experienced with the tools, we found this to be a great kit for young artists. We were particularly pleased with the inclusion of the high-quality kneading and drawing erasers. The kneading eraser especially is a long-lasting tool for any artist working in charcoal or graphite for erasing, creating highlights, and detailing.
Who It’s For
There is no age grade for this set. However, given the technical knowledge and dexterity required for use, we think it's best suited for young artists ages 8 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
Working in charcoal can get messy so we suggest setting up a work space before use.
