With it being holiday season soon, many of us are starting to work on what gifts to give to each of our friends and family. We have a few art lovers in our life and I wanted to share some great Stocking Stuffers for Art Lovers.
Stocking Stuffers for Art Lovers: Doodling
These three hardcover instructional books are great for those artists with a quirky side. Folk Art Fusion, teaches how to paint folk art subjects in a vibrant yet homespun style. Doodled Cats and Doodled Dogs, meanwhile, are packed with creative prompts, fun animal facts, and step-by-step doodling projects.
Stocking Stuffers for Art Lovers: Sketching
Filled with open practice pages, creative exercises, and prompts, The Little Book of Lettering & Word Design, The Little Book of Manga Drawing, andThe Little Book of Sketching encourages interactivity for immediate results, while also teaching the fundamentals of the featured medium in an engaging and fun way.
Stocking Stuffers for Art Lovers: Figure Artists
The lively, graphic approach of Pocket Art: Figure Drawing and Pocket Art: Portrait Drawing will have you drawing figures and faces right away. Look and learn with step-by-step illustrations and expert tips provided by London-based fashion and portrait artist Miss Led, a.k.a. Joanna Henly. These compact 112-page books are just the right size for carrying in a backpack or pocket, and comes with a sturdy flexi binding for added portability.
Besides books you should also think about gifting some great items that encourage more artistry. These items can include Sketching Pencil Set, a beautiful Handmade Leather Notebook/Sketchbook, an Easel or just a beginner artist set to get your artist started on the right foot.
What stocking stuffers for art lovers would you suggest? I would even think about items like coupons or gift certificates for framing, matting, film or an art class. All are great and expand on the artists skills.
