Since Monkey has moved to the School Nursery he seems to have found a love for painting. He’s always bringing home some new abstract piece of artwork. This set is aimed at children over the age of 8 years, but I will be using it with a 4 year Monkey with tight supervision. He loves painting and this system of connectors has caught his imagination.
Cass Art are a London based Art supplier with a comprehensive on-line shop – you can find anything from crayons and acrylic paints to modelling clay and fine arts supplies. They really do cover all ages and all abilities.
The wonderful thing about this particular watercolour paint set – the Faber-Castell Connector Watercolour paint box set of 24 assorted colours is that each sale will help children in Africa with the Lessons for Life Foundation.
The LFLF have teamed up with leading art supplier, Cass Art (who have a number of stores across London including their flagship store in Islington) to launch the initiative ‘Inspiring Art through Education’. The new Connector Watercolour paint box by Faber-Castell is available now on Cass Art’s newly launched website. The profit for each paint box sold will generate a sizeable donation directly to LFLF, helping to raise vital funds. These LFLF paint boxes will make the perfect Christmas gift or stocking filler (for a child of any age) and are available in time for the festive period online at www.cassart.co.uk.
This is a great Christmas stocking filler from Cass Art, the paint box contains 24 colours, on 2 levels, a paint brush and a tube of china white. You can use the inside of the lid for colour mixing. Monkey has loved connecting all of the paints into different combinations and shapes. We’re going to drawing around the paint containers to make a track and then we’ll paint it in. It’s a Christmas holiday project.
The Faber-Castell Connector Watercolour paint box set is currently on sale at the reduced price of £12.95 making it a great bargain, and you’re helping those in need at Christmas too.
