X-mas is approaching!!!
Gift suggestion for the kid artists in your list: colored pencils bundled with a generous supply of pencil sharpeners and a nice big sketchbook. Brand choices available in the children's art sections of Art & Craft stores and general retailers are quite adequate. Though if the kid in question has proven to be responsible and dedicated enough to handle Artist grade materials, you might want to shop around online for Prismacolor, Faber-Castell, Derwent, or Caran D'Ache colored pencil sets. In general there is a significant improvement in ease of use and color intensity when switching to the artist grade products. Still within the children's product range, Faber-Castell Red Line consistently provide bright intense colors.
