In this gift guide for artists, we hope to provide some guidance to choosing a gift for a loved one. At KennedyArt we pride ourselves on our knowledge and love of Artist’s Materials and by far the easiest way to choose a gift for someone is to call in to us, where we very much enjoy taking you through all the options and ensuring you leave with that perfect gift. However we are aware that this is not always possible and we hope this short guide will provide you with a few pointers to help.
The guide is aimed as a short set of pointers to those who are feeling their way, it is not meant to be a comprehensive resource.
We will split it into 3 sections: Adult, Teenager/Young Adult & Children
These sections will be further split into the 4 main art mediums: acrylic, oils, watercolour and dry art (drawing/sketching/markers/pastels).
A brief note about the quality of paint before we go on – artist quality and student quality paint have very different price points. In simple terms, this is because artist quality paint uses pure colour pigment and student quality uses imitation or mixed colours.
