Derwent Academy Principles of Sketching Kits Water Colour

Drawing is great fun and is even more enjoyable once the basic principles and techniques have been mastered. To help the budding artist master the art of drawing Derwent has introduced three Principles of Drawing kits as part of its Academy Range which provide the ideal introduction to the world of sketching and drawing with the perfect combination of quality, performance and advice. Fiona Peart, professional pencil artist and tutor has created the kits exclusively for Derwent Academy. Each kit features one type of Academy pencil – Sketching, Colour or Watercolour and the simple drawing projects have been specifically created to capitalise on the key qualities of each created to capitalise on the key qualities of each pencil.
The subjects to choose from include Mushrooms using Derwent Academy Sketching Pencils, an Apple & Lime with Derwent Academy Colour Pencils and a painting of a rowing boat drawn up on a beach with Derwent Academy Watercolour Pencils.
Academy pencils, an easy to follow step by step project sheet and an A5 practice pad of paper to use to master the techniques before you begin your finished drawing.

I was impressed with the set, I thought it was good value from a good brand and there were a lot of pencils and great instructions. The contents were great as there was a great range of colours and the pencils were very smooth on the surface, Taylor said they were really easy and nice to use. I think the quality is great and Taylor agreed too. This is a great price for the these as there is plenty in the packet, I think many families would enjoy this because who doesn’t enjoy coloring in? We loved using this product and spent many hours using them definetly fun for all the family. Lisa-Marie Brown – Taylor 8 Years

I was impressed with the quality and the packaging was beautiful. The contents were good, there was a lot of pencils and the kit was also simple to use too. My children found drawing a lot easier to use with this, most definitely! The quality is absolutely fantastic but I would be hesitant to pay this much for pencils. But overall, its a great set that all of my children enjoyed using, thoroughly recommended to all pencil lovers! Rubena Hussain – Sohail & Mansoor Ages 2 & 8 Years

The packaging clearly states what the product is, it’s purpose and looks like everthing is included in the pack to re-create the drawings displayed on the packaging. it includes good quality paper, a nice selection of coloured pencils and an easy to read instruction leaflet. however it’s not until we read the instructions included that we realised i would have had to purchase other items to be able to re-create the drawings illustrated, which was a little disappointing. It was very easy to paint using this kit, simple and clear instructions. when we normally paint there is a lot more mess, my daughter would need an apron, i would have to cover the table to protect it from the paint, we would need paint trays and more than one paint brush but with this product  you use the pencils for the inital colour then you paint over with water so you only use one paint brush, theres no paint trays to wash out and no mess. Also by using this product my daughter wouldn’t need my supervision where as normally when she paints i would supervise the activity. the quality of this product was fantastic, the pencils had their colour written on them so there was no confusion over which shade to use and they were already sharpened which we liked. it’s a nice activity for my child and this is not something i would have considered buying before as i just automatically brought paints. I would definatley recommend this as now we have experienced using this product it’s so simple to use and unlike normal painting there is no mess. Lesley holbutt – Tia 11 Years
