Paint Your Day Away with the Acrylic Artist Paint Set
Art is a fun way to develop creativity in a child. With the elimination of art programs in so many schools today it is up to parents and care givers to provide ways to develop that creativity. Knowing how to accomplish that is not always easy.
The first thing necessary to accomplish this is to gather together a group of supplies: paper, pencils paints and maybe even some chalk. Painting is definitely a favorite to most children. There is just something about a brush and paint and something to paint on that really appeals to a child’s creativity. No matter the age of the child it is usually a big hit.
Since painting appeals to such a large age group it seems like a good place to start. Acrylic paints are a favorite with most people just getting started. Acrylic paints have so many benefits and are so easy to work with. They dry quickly and are easily washed up with just water and no dangerous chemicals need to be used. This makes clean up so easy. Unlike oil paints this acrylic paint rinses right out of brushes keeping them soft and clean for use on the next project. It can also be made thinner by adding a small amount of water to the paint. It is best to do this on a small palette so the right consistency can be achieved. After it is diluted you can spread it onto the paper giving it a light water color effect. It is a good choice for beginners because it is inexpensive compared to oil paints.
The US Art Supply Company has the perfect starter set that contains 12 tubes of acrylic paints. That is the perfect number to begin with, enough colors to have choices but not too many to overwhelm the new painter. The colors are bright with a high quality pigment and are safe to be used in any setting since they are non-toxic, a must for working with children. They are lead free and conform to the “ASTM D4236 “ safety standards.
This set of 12 comes in a nice little package and would make a wonderful gift for some lucky child who is just starting to paint; but it would also make a great addition to someone who already paints. Giving a gift that develops creativity could eliminate so many wasted hours sitting in front of a TV set or video game.
