Art Materials

I tried "Aqua tone" colored pencils, manufactured by Derwent, in England.  This is a great tool for drawing fine lines or filling in larger shapes.  They're expensive, so they would be a special gift for a child who loves art.  (I found mine at Michaels.)  A suggestion:  Just buy the three primary colors at first, and let the child experiment with blending them to make all the other colors.  If you'd like, you can add pastels or earth tones, and possibly black and white, later.
