A Nostalgic Holiday - Etsy Gift Guide for the Grown Up Artist

When I was growing up, every year I received a present that I got every single year - an art set! I was a true artist at heart when I was a kid (and still to this day) so every Christmas I was so excited to unwrap my brand new art set; complete with markers, crayons, oil pastels, colored pencils, paints and so much more!

Eventually, I grew out of my love for children's art sets, I sadly grew up. So what’s a grown up artist to do?

This question inspired me to create this Etsy Holiday Gift Guide for the Grown Up Artist! I’ve included quality art supplies that I would’ve not been old enough to appreciate back in the day. And there’s no better place to get new art supplies and organization solutions than Etsy!

I would love to know, have you ever received an art set as a child? Please share in the comments below, I would love to reminisce with you!
