Every great artist was once a beginner. That's the premise, and implied promise, of Faber-Castell's Drawing and Sketching kit.

Learn basic drawing skills using graphite pencils, brush pen and markers. The 20 page illustrated instruction book begins by showing the type of line each drawing implement produces and how holding the pencils and pens in different ways produces different results. Introducing techniques to familiarize beginning artists with the materials and the methods, pages demonstrate how shadows, shapes, hatch marks and various papers affect the way an image looks.

The well priced kit contains: 4 graphite pencils (6B, 2B, HB, 2H), color GRIP medium tip black marker, color GRIP finepen black marker, black brush tip pen, zip lock pencil pouch, 20 page illustrated instruction book, 24 page spiral bound sketchbook (6" x 8"), 6 sheets of colored drawing paper (6" x 8"), 8 sheets of vellum paper (6" x 8"), plastic copy grid, (6" x 8"), eraser and sharpener.
