              This product was exactly what I was looking for for my 5 yr old grandson. I was so excited that I ordered it in October for Christmas. I was very dissappointed in the product, the pieces fall apart before my grandson can even start to play. For the money it should have been better thought out. I will buy Legos next time.

              “Where science ends, art begins,” wrote the 19th-century photographer Charles Nègre. STEM learning—science, technology, engineering, and math—has become a crucial part of school curriculums, but educators have begun transforming STEM to STEAM in recognition of the power of art and free-form creativity. There is no greater invitation to play, create, and imagine than a box of brand-new art supplies. This dazzling art set comes with everything you need to set the page ablaze with color:

              • 18 colored pencils
              • 18 vibrant crayons
              • 16 fine-point markers
              • 14 richly hued pastels
              • 8 high-saturation watercolor paints
              • 2 paintbrushes
              • 2 pencils with an eraser and sharpener

              Draw a comic, design your dream house or the car of the future, launch a fashion revolution, create a family crest, paint a friend’s portrait, doodle to your heart’s content… With a blank piece of paper and the Explore and Create Art Set, the sky’s the limit. The set comes in a box that has a rope handle and closure, making it easy to carry. The deceptively plain brown paper exterior encourages personalization: design, decorate, and embellish your kit to make it all your own.
